    you have to admit though, it looks a lot more friendly then the BSOD, more like its just talking to you instead of OMG!!!!!!! ITS BROKEN!!!!! that you normally get with bsod

    Think of the black as a very dark blue :p Eh, even if the Bluescreen is somewhat a legacy, I don't mind them changing it. I don't see one too often anyways, especially since I laid off the overclocking for the time being (summer now and ridiculously high temperatures in April. APRIL!). I'm sure within one hour of Win8 Beta launch there will be a Bluescreen mod or something available.

    I am just glad they didn't go with red as red for me implies the worse, imagine how much panic it would cause :rolleyes:

    As soon as I saw the subject title I thought it was just several new lines that Microsoft had added to the Windows kernel :D

    As soon as you click OK the BSOD should go away, I think.

    Yes you could but i would not just for the fact of a lack of info on that screen. Like how do you get to know what the error is if you cannot boot into windows ?.

    windows has done errors like that on my computer, eg: all it has is an error code with lots of 1's or 0's in it

    they were just in the tradditional format

    Good find. I tried to search for that one, but was unable to find it. Gave up and went with Data's.

    It's no longer the BSOD, even while Black starts with B.. it looks more like a black-screen-of-mild-uncertainty.

    I'll miss the "It's definitely broken" feeling lol

    When I was at MS tech support a guy said he had a BSOD and I assumed blue screen, but he meant the black screen with the blinking dot that happens on startup when the system is totaled. Then he laughed in my face when I assumes BSOD = bluescreen.

    As long as it's more helpful than the old BSOD, I'm all for it.
