The infamous Death Blue Screen, also known as BSOD, has been around for years and, like other features of Windows, has undergone several revisions in multigenerational systems. Although BSOD itself has evolved, that doesn’t mean it’s become friendly, because its role is primarily to help users diagnose problems and find solutions to them (in fact, few non-professional users can solve them).
A new approach to BSOD intuition and unfriendly ness has recently been proposed on Reddit, including not only a new design, but also a more understandable message that even beginners can understand.
The design itself uses elements already familiar to Windows 10 users, including the Acrylic effect of Fluent Design. Of course, there is also a dark theme that aligns BSOD with the rest of the operating system, using the same light and shade mode.
As you can see, this “blue screen of death” has only a few remaining blue elements, but the more important change is the friendship message it uses. The goal is to appeal to even the simplest users, who don’t know much about super-detailed error messages and don’t know what’s going on when they receive them. That would be a friendlier approach. Reddit user TheVoneTrecker, who posted the idea, said.
Although more advanced users won’t like this friendlier look. However, understand that the 10X will not become a hard core workstation operating system. It will be a (a bit) shrinking version of Windows 10, done for more general use. That’s why, at least in my opinion, such an operating system is best for users to receive such friendly errors.
Of course, the concept map is always still a concept, and like many other cool ideas recently, it can’t always be on Windows 10.
