Anyone who has used a PC knows the feeling of a blue screen of death very well. Something went wrong! Due to device driver issues, aggressive overclocking or hardware failures, most gamers may have experienced the blue screen of death.
For some reason, Microsoft chose to change the traditional blue screen to a black screen in Windows 11. Obviously, it never explains why the changes were made, but the reasoning is likely to be as simple as introducing another way to make Windows 11 feel “new” and overhauling the rest of the UI. Perhaps equally puzzling is why I chose to revert to the blue screen. Did the user report back to Microsoft for recovery? “Hey Microsoft, I hope my crash is blue!” Blue screen nostalgia is obviously the same thing.
The blue screen of death is part of the Windows experience. Its origin can be traced back to Windows 1.0. Over the years, it has continued to develop, adding debugging and QR codes, which can help users determine the cause of the problem. Later versions of Windows added a sad emoji, as if the shock and fear when your screen flashed to that damn blue was not enough.
