Windows 7: Green is the new Blue

Green is the new Blue

From The Reg (link below):

"Redmond has released Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 15002 one of the biggest updates to its cloudy operating system ahead of the release of the Creators Update later this year.

There's a whole host of upgrades and additions in the new build, but one that will be immediately noticeable to developers is the axing of the traditional Blue Screen of Death whenever the operating system throws its toys out of the playpen. Now it will be green."

Of all the problems W-10 has, I wondering how going from a BSOD to a GSOD is going to fix any of the problems.

Who remembers MS touting XP as the OS that didn't have the BSOD screen? (simply because they forced a reboot to avoid showing it)

Green's fine for me. If it was Red then I'd be intimidated.
