Mac Kernel Panics are just as depressing as Windows Blue Screens of Death, but considerably more stylish: Rather than spewing hex code at you, they tell you the bad news in four languages superimposed on an image of a power button.
My two cents
That is such an Apple way of doing things. I have an iMac but I haven’t been able to make this happen in all the time that I’ve owned one. I’ve managed to crash certain programs, but the screen gives a more boring technical error report; I wonder why they didn’t do the stylish design for the more common errors such as these.
