The BSOD screensaver has been around for a _long_ time and even is
available for use on a windows system IIRC.

I think it is funny, and it also has the  atari, commodore64, apple ][,
and others to look at as well.

All you have to do is remember "This machine is not running windows/XXX"
and the panic becomes laughable.
