Williams, who has filed a multi-million dollar federal lawsuit against Transocean, also said that five weeks before the April 20 explosion, he had been called to check a computer system that monitored and controlled drilling.

The machine had been locking up for months, Williams said, producing what he and others on the crew called a "blue screen of death." "It would just turn blue. You'd have no data coming through," Williams said today, according to the New York Times' story.

Well in my everso humble experience....when a critical machine regularly starts misbehaving in this manner....there is a serious issue that needs to be addressed asap...and the machine should be repaired\replaced\reinstalled.

Obviously a bad driver...or failing piece of hardware....

To blame MS on this is just wrong....
