So, tonight, I use Leopard to access a Windows File Sharing drive for the first time. I'm in the network browser, looking at my computers, when I notice this:


I couldn't quite believe what I was seeing, so I did a little digging and found the larger version of the image:

Yup, that's it alright: when you view PC shares in the Mac OS X network browser, the icons are displaying a Blue Screen of Death. Awesome.

Icon file is located at: /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/public.generic-pc.icns.

This may be old news, and not specific to Leopard for all I know, but I've never seen it before.
