|Why the blue screen of death no longer plagues Windows users|
|Why the blue screen of death no longer plagues Windows users |
Remember the blue screen of death, a Windows PC's way of telling you it had suffered an error so catastrophic it couldn't carry on anymore?
In recent years sightings of the BSOD have become less common in Windows operating systems, as Microsoft has stamped out some of the rogue code commonly responsible.
The article says:
|Drivers can be particularly difficult to debug, as their code will be written by different companies and is generally not open source, so is opaque to Microsoft |
If the code were open source, many of the issues would be fixed without involving Microsoft.
I, kind of, miss the BSOD, in a perverted sort of way........ :)
blue screens started going away as soon as win 2000 rolled out and they based everything off of NT.
now the only time you get a blue screen is when something is REALLY broke.

I half expected the answer to be that they'd changed the colour of it.
@tbear, I used to use a BSOD screensaver - on Linux, it would probably be too confusing on Windows.
