I was working with Windows Server 2008 when suddenly Windows Explorer crashed and restarted itself without rebooting the computer, presumably avoiding the Blue Screen of Death.
It reminded my of when I worked at Microsoft where the opinion unsurprisingly and almost-universally held was that “Microsoft is Awesome”. This opinion is divergent from general consensus, but that’s not the point. The point is that I deliberately said, “almost-universally” – not “universally”. This is because this one guy on my team would always say with a sly smile, “Whoever designed Windows Restart is genius. It’s one feature that fix all problem. I want to work on Restart team.”
The really crazy thing is, there actually is a Restart Team.
