    Unusual new computer display at warehouse store

    So, I went to this warehouse store the other day. In my way to the computer aisle, I saw this corner display showing a all-in-one computer.

    As I was getting closer, something called my attention: text mode on blue background.

    Is it running a terminal session?
    Maybe a minecraft server?
    Is it running DOS?

    Nope, it was just a BSOD.

    Thought it was funny.
    Kind Regards.

    Lol nice. I'd be all "Can I buy the display model at a serious discount?" probably needs just needs a driver reinstalled 0x0000003b and apparently the poor thing has mcafee installed on it.

    Can I just kick Windows out and install whatever Linux version to fit it?

    Display models always get treated like crap. You would never make a descion based on the floor model at best buy because half the time it's broken.
    Whoever came up with the phrase "There is no such thing as a stupid question" obviously never had the internet.

    I never had a BSOD in Windows before. I love my Linux however.

    LOL I thought BSODs were a thing of the past. That display model runs Windows 7 I guess?

    My last BSoD was a couple of days ago, when I went back to Windows to do some Microsoft Word (LibreOffice Math has some errors, darn) While I was halfway through, a BSoD showed up (NVIDIA-related issues I think).

    If Microsoft Word didn't have autosave then <CENSORED>
