    In windows 7 you get a similar screen when windows encounters a problem and needs to shut down to protect itself and then you have the actual BSOD, which only last for a second or two. So in 8, has both been incorporated into just the sad smiley face.

    Here's the old one (with my annotations):

    The new one is much simpler. It gives enough info for one to start looking for answers. It's the only one that you'll see in Win8
    Not many people use the detailed info on the old screen - and rarely is it needed as there are other ways to get the info.
    Also, some answers are simple and easily found - while others will want to make you rip your hair out!
