FORTUNE — Nobody is calling iOS 7 the new Vista.

Well, TechCrunch‘s Alex Wilhelm did. And the Mercury News‘ Troy Wolverton dubbed iOS 7 “one of the buggiest” system updates Apple (AAPL) has ever released.

Most tech reporters, to their credit, simply noted the comic irony that some iPhone 5S owners — including your’s truly — are experiencing Apple’s version of Windows’ BSoD.

For how it occurs and how to work around it, see Tom Warren’s piece Friday in the Verge, the MacRumors thread iPhone 5s Blue screen of death and reboot or Apple’s own discussion forums.

Now let’s see how long it takes Apple’s engineers to fix it.
