I learned this weekend (talking to an acquaintance who has the
misfortune to work on such systems) that by default XP reboots rather
than showing a *-Screen-of-Death. There is apparently a configuration
setting nested deep within the so-called "Control" panel that disables
the reboot behavior and will indeed show the *SOD.
I suppose that's one way to minimize *SOD complaints. Though I can
think of a much better one.
