Seems the giant screen in Olympic Stadium showed more than the opening ceremonies:

The global audience tuned into Beijing's National Stadium got to see Microsoft's dirty laundry aired in public during the opening festivities: the Blue Screen of Death on massive Olympian-sized monitors, as systems tasked with running the coordinated visual spectacle and reportedly powered by Windows XP Embedded apparently crashed.

Those viewers include, of course, Bill Gates.

El Reg has a screenshot, so stop by.
