BSOD: Linux Installation
This alternative to the original Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) screensaver adds a bit of pro-Linux humor by pretending to format the hard drive and install a Linux distribution. It starts with a traditional blue screen, then simulates a reboot and gives an "error" stating that a Microsoft operating system was found. It then proceeds to "format" the hard drive and install and boot into Linux, logging in to the console with username "BillGates".
