The mythical blue screen of death (BSOD) is going to be turning black in Windows 11. But we can still call it BSOD cause these names are starting with the same letter, b.
Leaving the anecdotes aside, the truth is that it is a small change besides the nostalgia. This famous screen has been in the system since Windows 3.0.
Windows’ Blue screen of death is turning black
Although there has always been some form of blue screen of death since the beginning of Windows, in 2016 we already experienced a major color change. That year, the company decided on a green screen to indicate problems in the versions of the Windows Insider program.
The new screen, besides the color change, is identical to the one we have right now. We will still have the sad face and the QR code for further information. We don’t know why Microsoft is taking a step like this, but the color black is harmonious with the boot screen for sure.
