Why'd my reliable mac crash so violently?

My 15" Powerbook from 2003, running OS X.3, just froze up and demanded that I restart my computer. Why?

The screen grayed out and a message popped up telling me to restart my computer in English, German and a couple of other languages, in front of a graphic of the apple power logo.
Was it some kind of kernel crash? I've gone through my logs and don't see anything out of the ordinary.
I've never seen anything like this. Has my computer been hacked, or was it just running so long that a serious crash was bound to happen? (Disclosure: I've been using OS9 support recently.)
