A BSOD of Olympic Proportions

Most of us who have used a Windows PC know what a Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) is. Well, there could be no more perfect timing for a BSOD than this. Right when Li Ning was rounding the lip of the Bird's Nest during the climax of the torch-lighting ceremony, someone snapped this photo of the familiar BSOD most of us have seen at one time or another.

The original pic was spotted at a Chinese language forum.


But the best pictures were the ones taken by rivercoolcool, who said he was sitting right below the BSOD image.

 
Some have speculated PhotoShopping (an obvious possibility), but quite a few have looked at these images already and seem to think, in particular, that the image was waaaaay too well done to be fakes, with all the shadows and even creasing. Additionally, someone even reportedly found the image on his DVR. Assuming we now believe it to be true, the only remaining question is: genuine or pirated version of Windows?

Are you kidding? Aren't the Chinese world-renowned for pirating? (Gosh, I hope no one spanks me too-hard for writing this!)

Shouldn't the BSOD be in Chinese?
