I had a system where switching a SCSI card with a NIC from PCI1 to PCI2 (and vice versa of course), made Windows 2000 bluescreen. Just switching those two cards. Nothing else and the SCSI had only a scanner attached, no bootable devices.

So, yes, that is long ago, but Windows 2000 implies at least the year 2000.

Linux didn't complain at all.... Yes, I was running Linux back then in dual boot.

Interestingly in many languages it is "heaven", just not in English. Deutsch = "Steuerparadies", French = "Paradis Fiscal", Dutch = "Belastingsparadijs". They all literally mean "tax heaven".

You're right, it's not correct in English, but you might see that the error is understandable if you're not a native English speaker. I'm not and funnily enough, I am from Luxembourg.
