I've already had three Microsoft HQL certified drivers (one written by Microsoft) on this computer which shouldn't have passed the certification because they blatantly violates the specifications by huge amounts (up to 130 times as long block as maximium allowed). If MS can't take the blame for certifying drivers that don't comply with their own specifications, who can?


Are you running a 64-bit version of Windows? Are the drivers you mention signed? Just curious...

The Windows is 32-bit. It turns out that the drivers weren't signed by MSHQL (I think). Microsoft's own driver is signed by "Microsoft Windows Component Publisher". Broadcom's driver I have upgraded (new driver released after I had problems, so I had the latest version by then), but the new one is signed by "Microsoft Windows Hardware Compatibility Publisher". Nvidia's driver is signed by "Microsoft Windows Hardware Compatibility Publisher".

Thats possibly a hardware issue . Most the time windows crashes due to poorly written third party drivers , Microsoft cannot take the blame for that .

I disagree. Third party drivers are developed according the OS developer's specifications, and the OS should sensibly handle drivers that misbehave.

Not possible when drivers corrupt kernel data structures, unfortunately. This is why many classes of drivers were moved into user space in Vista. Some still have to run in kernel mode, though, and those can hose your system.

This happened after adding GNU's multiboot.h as an include file for most of the source files for my system :(

Attached was my first try of a 'Hello World!' using printf(), the result was quite funny :):

The screenshot attached was made when I was implementing my hexadecimal display function. The problem however was that it went into a loop ad infinitum :lol:.

Most of these are self-induced. Makes me wanna break my OS on purpose just so I can post a picture of it broken too.

This happens whenever the QEMU window is resized on Pedigree. It also occurs very rarely on some real hardware.

Fire effect in Compiz. I should note that this screenshot was provided by someone else in a bug report - it's just one of the most recent examples of Pedigree at its worst :)
