Being expected to come next year, Windows 8 is already a topic of great interest and every week seems to bring more speculations about the new version of the operating system. Among the features that Windows 8 is thought to come up with, there’s also the Blue Screen of Death upgrade.
So, if you are an avid user of Windows, you’re probably familiar with BSoD also known as the Blue Screen of Death that has been part of the operating system right from its first version. Standing for the crashing of computers, the BSoD has been intended for engineers who tried to figure out what was that caused the crashing of the PC.
One of the things that Windows 8 brings is the BSoD upgrade. Therefore, the screen will get a new facelift with the latest version of Windows that is expected to come next year. You won’t see a screen that includes lines of code or all of those bugs checks anymore.
What you’ll get instead of the old BSoD is a blue screen that shows a big sad emoticon and a message telling you that your computer ran into a problem and needs to restart. The new error screen is clearly more user-friendly though many users would like not to see it. Rumors had it that the screen will be black and there will not be any sad emoticon. Still, more sources claim that the blue screen will be the one we’ll get with Windows 8. So, we are more inclined to believe the rumors related to blue version.
Coming up with Metro interface, improved speed and performance and a Windows App Store, Windows 8 will work on tablets, laptops and desktops and will bring support for touchscreens. With so many good things, Windows 8 launch will surely be one of the most important events of 2012.
