Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 76 People

    Too Many a Time.

    That's Why I Have a 

    You NEVER get the blue screen of death on a Mac.  The worst thing that ever happens on a Mac is that an individual program crashes.  When that happens, all you have to do is Force Quit it, and then it's fine.  The OS never crashes though.  No viruses either...

    Worst Thing Ever

    Everytime I see that screen, I know it's time to bury my computer. Because, no matter what you do to try and fix it, nothing, absolutely nothing, will bring a computer back to life once it has the blue screen. R.I.P. :(
