In my experience BSODs appear when network interface drivers get thrown for a loop. I've seen a few blue screens for those drivers on different computers with different drivers and different versions of Windows.

It's difficult to judge when a task is too complicated for a computer to run. It's also difficult to be 100% sure a driver you think is reliable really is. I wouldn't want to worry about it in a hospital, or when controlling freight trains.
