Even the Windows 8 Blue Screens have been re-imagined!

The Windows Blue Screens have many a times frustrated even the best of geeks and proved to be rather traumatic experience for many! Everything about Windows 8 appears to be better and more user-friendly, even its BSODs or Blues Screens! They are now simpler and easier on the eyes! 

MVP colleague Richard Hay, while installing the Windows 8 Developers Preview on his computer faced this Windows 8 BSOD and decided to share it. It was the error Windows 8 reported when he tried to install it on VPC.

The BSOD is simple and to the point. You have a sad emoticon and a simple message stating:

Your PC ran into a problem that it couldnt handle and now it needs to restart. You can search for the error online…

and the error message is given. So simple, so clean!

Microsoft sure re-imagined Windows 8 – and did not forget its Blues Screens too! 🙂
