What is the best example of “it’s a feature, not a bug”?

1 1
Microsoft is famous for three things: 1. Windows 
2. how obscenely rich Bill Gates is
and 3. the blue screen of death.

For the uninformed, the so called blue screen of death was Microsoft's FINAL SOLUTION. The blue screen was born when Bill Gateswas so worried that they might not finish Windows 95 in time for the end of 1995 that he ordered his programmers to catch all unexplained errors with his newly invented blue screen. Like the illegal operation error message, the blue screen was manufactured to make the end users feel like they had done something wrong, in order to avoid massive amounts of users calling up tech support to scream into their headsets.
