Steve Ballmer Authored the Windows 3.1 Ctrl-Alt-Del Screen

Svenne Re:Never seen it (169 comments)

Thank you. The article makes it sound as if it was used in versions after Windows 3.1, and specifically not in 3.1. I was lucky enough to not have a Windows PC in the old 3.1 days, so that would explain it.

Svenne Never seen it (169 comments)

I must be unique then in that I have used Windows for 15 years and I've never seen that particular blue screen before. Had to google it after reading the article, and still can't find any other mention of it. In what version of Windows was it used?

Silent, Easily Made Android Rootkit Released At DefCon

Svenne Cool (133 comments)

Can this be used to gain root on Android devices with a locked bootloader? That would be neat. Imagine rooting your phone without having to flash it.
