Not so fast.  "man bsod" shows:

"bsod steps through a set of screens, each one a recreation of a
different failure mode of an operating system.  Systems depicted
include Windows 3.1, Windows 95, Windows NT, MS-DOS, AmigaDOS 1.3,
Linux, SCO UNIX, BSD UNIX, HPUX, Solaris, VMS, HVX/GCOS6,  IBM  OS/390,
MacOS (MacsBug, Bomb, Sad Mac, and OSX), Atari ST, Apple ][+, and NCD X

You can also use the preview option under Preferences/screensaver to see
the Linux "crash".

For me, it was creepy to see a Guru Meditation error on my Linux box. :)
