“A trip back to the DOS days!”
“Don't you mean the Apple II days?”
“Umm, no, are you from MARS or something?”
“In Soviet Russia, Windows does not like you, YOU like Windows!”
“WTF!? THE BSOD SUCKS!”
Windows X-Console is a new operating system by Microsoft, which takes you back way to the DOS days.
History of Windows X-Console[edit | edit source]
The founding of Windows X-Console: January 2002[edit | edit source]
Bill Gates admired his new Windows XP OS for quite a while, until users started complaining that it...
..failed. Key-to-the-gates was furious about this and threatened to make a new DOS, and he...
..failed, again. Therefore, he grabbed a gun and threatened to shoot the devs unless they made a new DOS with Windows power. The devs tried, and they...
...succeeded! This was how Windows X-Console was born.
Decision-making time: February 31, 2002[edit | edit source]
The developers remembered that Key-to-the-gates (as Bill Gates was nicknamed) told them to make an OS with the power of Windows. This also means the stability of Windows. Since this is our favorite Windows game for everyone (even the developers), they decided to implement it in Windows X-Console too!
Beta 1337.2: August 2002[edit | edit source]
Unfortunately, sometime back in July, users started reporting that the OS was crashing before they got to play BSOD. One user even reported that this text appeared on his screen before he was about to play BSOD:
/xconsole/~: bsod.exe -noautoreboot Trap error: Process bsod.exe crashed! EX 0x00000000 EA 0x12345678 BF 0xDEADBEEF ZA 0x99999991 ZS 0xFFFFFFFF PP 0x9FFCABBA Please call Microsoft Technical Support and provide the information above.
Therefore, Microsoft released Windows X-Console Beta 1337.2 and BSOD v3.1 Standard Edition as critical updates. These updates fixed the crashing bug by making BSoD start as soon as drivers are initalized (unless the user booted in safe mode by pressing F8+666+Windows+Alt+Ctrl+Delete+1+2+3+4+5+7+8+9+*+/+-+z+x+c+b+?+=+Apple+Command).
Beta 1337.3 and BSOD v4.0: September 2002[edit | edit source]
Bill Gates realized he had to do SOMETHING - his users were starting to get bored of the technical info on BSOD. So, his development team released BSOD 4.0!
