    I suppose it really doesn't matter what colour your screen goes once it gives you the information and your machine turns back on, so they can make it purple with pink spots, once it does the biz.

    Sounds like it will look more modern. Not that I'd want to see a screen of death.

    I actually prefer the black, more modern looking, and the bsod stays the same. But maybe they could color code them like homeland security for how screwed you are
