Windows 8 BSOD

Windows 8 comes with many, many new features, but one you may not have heard about is a new blue screen of death. Instead of the harsh blue with all sorts of (seemingly-but-not-really-random) text all over, it's a more Windows-8-y blue with a few simple words. Click the picture above for the larger picture. Instead of a whole bunch of different errors numbers and letters, it's a simple line of errors that is easy to remember/write down and search online for later. I personally think it's a better approach to serious errors than the previous BSoD, and it just looks more user-friendly. You can read more about it here.
