    Blue Screen of Death Lives On in Windows 8



    Good news for the haters, when Microsoft said it reimagined Windows, it also reimagined what the Blue Screen of Death (BSoD) should look like, which means Windows 8 isn't immune to crashing. If you think about it, it's kind of comforting in a way. After all, what would Windows be without a BSoD revealing what went wrong? You could answer "Linux," or even "Mac OS X" if you're trying to start a flame war, but we won't go there.

    As much as we all hate getting a BSoD, they're actually pretty helpful if you know how to decipher them. They're also a little intimidating, despite the use of the color blue, which studies show have a relaxing effect on people. It appears Microsoft wants them to be even less frightening in Windows 8.

    I've gotten that screen too many times to count already. Apparently Windows 8 and VirtualBox don't get along too well.

    On my test machine I get one after about 15-30 minutes of sitting idle... Not the same cause every time either.

    Heh well of course it's not even beta yet

    A kinder gentler BSOD screen doesnt even imply a kinder gentler OS. Its called Job security
