I like the kernel's various dazed and confused messages. Truest generic error/exception handler ever.

Also a classic:

Code: Select all

ERROR: Root device mounted successfully, but /sbin/init does not exist.
Bailing out, you are on your own now. Good luck.

Install sl and watch what happens when you type sl instead of ls in a command (which is a common typo).... :wink:
