Everyone's Favorite Windows Error is Now Artwork

500 prints of the Windows XP wallpaper "Green Hill" have been turned into a piece of art, called "My Favourite Landscape." Yes, the world's most infuriating computer error can now be cooed at in an art gallery. Ugh.

Paul Destieu, the creator of such horror, used 500 prints which "sets the common bug out of its context, on a wall, expending it to much bigger scale. The famous picture finds a new landscape shape out of its usual frame."

I had this happen once with a program you couldn't quit on a computer I couldn't tell to STOP!

That was annoying.

Could you imagine this with the blue screen? Ick!

Now you have to wonder how many people are going to appreciate this fine piece of art, and how many are going to rage at it.

I fail to see how this is Art. But it'll probably sell for 500k or some exorbitant sum of money
