Microsoft's Rough Start

1:05 PM -- LAS VEGAS -- 2011 International CES -- Tonight's keynote kickoff from Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT) CEO Steve Ballmer will probably be glitch-free, but the company's Windows OS didn't come off looking so hot last night as travelers started to fill the baggage claim here at McCarran International Airport.

This technical hiccup on the video wall near baggage claim No. 11 drew a few snickers as a throng waited for bags, hopeful that the taxi line wouldn't be too long:

Bad App?

Okay, so this glitch wasn't of the Blue Screen of Death variety, but it was hard not to notice it.

That's pretty funny.

I wonder if a blue screen of death might have been better, or if it would have just looked more ridiculous. Maybe we should convince Microsoft to try both next time.  :)
