Microsoft’s early attempts to the tablet crown from Apple hasn’t really gone according to plan. All the Surfaces from the original to the Pro 2 were flops, but Microsoft seems to have hit its stride with the Surface Pro 3. Now it’s ready to take on the iPad with an even cheaper tablet.

Window’s Blue Screen of Death was the tech world’s joke du jour for poking fun at Microsoft’s crash-friendly software, and while many believed the blue screen had finally died, it looks like Windows Phone is carrying on the proud tradition of the horrific error notification.
Ars Technica tech editor, Peter Bright tweeted the picture above of his Nokia Windows Phone with the fatal error screen. Other Twitter users have also posted shots of their Windows Phone afflicted by the BSoD ‘process initialization failed’ error.
