At least in linux I get a error when I try to rewrite the entire contents of
memory insted of this stupid windows idea of "it's ok, it's a nice program
taking control of some stuff, Ok it's done now, What the??? NOOOOOOO!!!!!
Crash Bang Boom" idea.

Maybe microsoft should work on different colours for it's Blue Screens of
Death. They don't seam to be fixing them
