I have been speaking to one of my friends at M$. He is responsible for leading the OS coding team. This is unoffical, however, when we were on the phone last night he was telling me about a 7 hour meeting he was called into. XP (although rearly seen) still have the classic BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death). Anyway, this metting had 1 item on the agenda. M$ wanted rid of the BSOD for the next OS. Do you what they have done? No! It is now the GSOD or MSOD depending on the error type.
For most errors it will be the GSOD (Green). For errors involving stack dumps, memory dumps and unstable systems it will be the MSOD (Maroon).
