The blue screen of death — or BSOD — is always an unwelcome sight. BSODs appear when Microsoft Windows encounters a critical error it can’t recover from, requiring a reboot and possibly resulting in lost work.

Windows 8 users at least don't get a scary terminal like message, in fact, their's looks a little bit pretty by Windows Standards.

Yes i remember when i was on an old XP and got my first blue screen, back then i heard of them but i thought if you got one the that was it your PC was dead for good, was a scary time for me, but soon got the problem sorted out, i remember it being something to do with the bios, think i just updated it or something was a long time ago.

The windows seven one looks like a blue version of the linux shutdown bash that appears.

When BlueScreenView can't find the dump file, I guess it's because the SSD C: drive is the culprit ???

The Windows 8 BSOD is definitely more user friendly than previous versions but I wish they'd loose the cheesy emoticon, for some reason it makes me think of MS Bob. =/

Looking up MS Bob on Wikipedia revealed to me that Comic Sans was invented for it. This is the worst thing that MS has ever done.
