The blue screen is back, brought you by Adobe!
Ok not exactly by Adobe. It’s done by this guy.

Here’s how it works.
When you enter fullscreen mode in Flash 9 there‚Äôs a little message telling you that you can exit fullscreen by pressing escape. What this guy discovered was that it’s not difficult to obscure that message and make it appear as though the machine has crashed(Windows crash).
Don’t worry about future variations(read:future pranks) though, because when Flash goes fullscreen, keyboard input is disabled.
Now if only someone is smart enough to come up with a fake OS flash done this way..
