Apple Software engineer Satoshi Nakajima, the lead architect of Microsoft's Windows 95, picked up a Mac for the first time two years ago. He was so impressed, he says he'll never again touch a PC again. Satoshi loves Apple products so much, he started a company in April, Big Canvas, to develop for Apple's iPhone platform full-time. "We have chosen iPhone as the platform to release our first product (for) several reasons," explains his company's website. "We love Apple products... You need love to be creative."

Don't you mean, segmentation fault?

Do Macs have BSODs?

A BSOD is just a kernel panic and OS X can also have panics. They used to be a bit frightening:

True, but Apple's kernel doesnt' produce those gloriously useless and cryptic registry addresses that reveal nothing about what the hell just puked.

Linux and OS X are truly missing out on that one.

Through no fault of my own I once had half an OSX version installed over a different version of OSX.... when I started it up I got the initial blue screen you usually get when starting and then suddenly half the screen had these runs of monospaced characters (white on black background like from the commandline) which looked like they were running down the screen covering some of the blue.
It was static, but looked like the matrix was trying to take over my computer.... well it failed, but then so did OSX.

Yes, they have some equivalent thing that displays with a nice message saying you have to do a hard-poweroff.

What "good" OS is hard-ware limited? My friend has a major problem with Mac OS, and I use it all the time, but he does have a good point. That's a major flaw with this OS.
