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".

*  When only a few of the virus scanners detect a problem with a file, this usually indicates a false alarm. While we simply cannot guarantee the safety of any file for 100%, we review them all carefully and report false positives to the anti-virus companies.
