Re: Hold on
Your assertion that someone at the rank of constable is somehow an inexperienced noob is entirely misguided.
A police officer may spend their entire career at the rank of constable - it doesn't mean they're thick or unambitious. There is a very wide range of roles available at that rank. Perhaps an individual doesn't want to become sergeant. Perhaps they’re happy doing what they’re doing or don’t want the additional responsibility. Ranks in the UK police cannot be compared to the British Army. PC is not equivalent to Lance Corporal.

I just don't understand why this is supposed to be hilarious
"Operating system behaves as per design". Not funny, is it?
When a crash occurs in Kernel Mode, the operating system's task is to preserve your data. Unlike a crash in Application Mode, it can't recover and continue.
Therefore, it dumps memory to disk using a cut-down device driver and displays a message. What do you expect?
And since writing device drivers is very difficult, yes, they sometimes crash. And often these are drivers not written by Microsoft.
Linux and VMware aren't immune to Kernel Mode crashes, and neither was the Amiga. So where's the joke? I don't get it.
