It seems the latest build for Windows 10 Insiders are no longer getting the infamous Blue Screen of Death, and are now getting a Green Screen of Death.
Novel, eh!
The newest version of Windows 10 for those insiders brings a small, but colorful change: Now, if and when something goes wrong, they'll see a Green Screen of Death, instead... Windows 10 Insiders Getting Green Screen of Death [uk.businessinsider.com]

That's to remind them of how much money is involved. :)

I have progressively lost interest in Windows 10 Builds. The latest epistle from Microsoft to "Insiders" such as myself offer [22/12/16]:

If you haven’t run a Windows 10 Insider Preview Build recently, you’ll definitely want to check out the latest builds. They’re loaded with an exceptional number of exciting, new features. Here are just a few highlights for Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14986 for PC: links to

[blogs.windows.com ]


Offering [from email]:

1. Cortana just got even more awesome.
2. A big leap in full-screen gaming support.
3. Do more with Windows Ink.


There is much, much more - none of which I am remotely interested in. Problems however which are of enduring interest?

How about, as one solitary example, addressing the well known "copy files" problems which Mr. Microsoft's engineers glibly gloss over because we - the complainers - won't "get with the programme"?

I'm certain there are folks out there salivating over each new development - meanwhile at the coal face where folks merely regard Windows as nothing more than a working tool - not an orgasmic life changing experience? Where each new development has absolutely nothing to do with your working day?

I say: Blah!

Even if I am not personally interested in new OS features, many users are and this is the technology they see the internet on, so it's prudent for me, as a webmaster, to stay relevant.
