Windows 8 Has Finally Updated The Blue Screen Of Death

It took Microsoft long enough, but they’ve finally (FINALLY!) changed the blue screen of death to be something a little more friendly and a little less scary.

Honestly, how many times have you used the dump information on the BSOD to actually diagnose a problem, compared to how many times you just rebooted the computer and didn’t think anything of it? A more cutesy error message is a better idea.

We’re also really glad they updated the similarly old-school task manager, so who knows what other changes we’re going to find in version #8.
