    First kernel panic on my new MacBook Pro. I think it had something to do with Quicktime. The strange thing is the message I got after I rebooted:

    2.16 GHz MacBook Pro/2 GB RAM/80 Gig HD/Mac OS X 10.4.7

    This dialog is triggered by OSX noting that it kernel paniced. When it kernel panics a log file gets written. This dialog allows you to send that log (and a brief description of what you were doing) to Apple.

    Apple can then analyse the logs from lots of people. If the start to see paterns (i.e. common causes) they can investigate and fix it making OSX better for all :)
