    While there had been hints of a new look earlier, the Windows 8 code delivered to developers at Microsoft's Build conference in Anaheim yesterday includes a Blue Screen of Death the likes of which users have not seen before.

    (What online news looked like on 9/11)

    After expressing emoticon-style sadness, the new screen reads:

    Your PC ran into a problem that it couldn't handle, and now it needs to restart.

    You can search for the error online: HAL_INITIALIZATION_FAILED

    One could argue that it is the Microsoft operating system that failed, not your PC, but let's not quibble.

    The change is beginning to attract more attention. Pocket-lint reports:

    Yep, even the dreaded BSOD has been reimagined, making it much more friendly and less scary. Sure, your computer is probably knackered if you're presented with it, but look at that emoticon - Windows 8 has a personality, it's sad for us in our time of need. ...
    Well that makes it all so much better.

    I wonder if they have Apples going fast enough to crash yet?
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    Don't need a BSOD if your computer doesn't crash.

    Says a lot about the confidence Gates and Co have in their product when even something like the BSOD gets a makeover.
