One OS to Crash Them All

At work yesterday, we found an application (A PDF converter), that could reliably crash Windows 2000 (Blue Screen of Death) when a given certain input. We tried this on a few machines, and with the latest service packs.

Under Windows 2003, it didn't crash, the program just spat out garbage.

I guess they actually did do stuff in their 1 year security/bug fix time.
