Our computers at work are currently running a server version of Windows Vista... yes, proof positive that your tax dollars are being flagrantly wasted. I run into one or two BSODs a day, usually after I've forgotten to save my last four hours of work. I have used a home version of Vista for two years now that's relatively stable, but be warned, Bill Gates, your time in my household is SO drawing to a close. I have my eye on a 27" iMac... stable like a ten-ton block of granite sitting on a kitten.

Kitty sure get's a lot of screen-time lately.
On a lighter note, I had a single BSOD with Vista in 3 years and it was a hard-ware thing. And Windows 7 works just fine for me. Love the MacOS somewhat, but if you like gaming and hate to fiddle around with emulators...
Plus, I have seen Macs crash too.

No question, I will keep my PC around for gaming, but I'm not that serious a gamer, so it's not a huge deal for me.

I'm certain that a lot of the issues we have with Vista at work are combinations of many factors, such as ridiculously overwrought security procedures, IT guys who have had ten weeks of training, and seriously outdated hardware that was struggling with XP. But I love how Vista's default response to these problems is to cop a squat, dump physical memory, throw up a BSOD, and start your day over by force. Even compared to my really nice copy of Vista, every Mac I've worked with has been a really nice, frustration-free experience.

True, everything crashes. Especially when launched from a trebuchet.

I think you need a way to show it's Vista which is BSOD'ing. Other than that, it's a perfect comic. ;)

The "You are so hosed" isn't clue enough?
