On June 24, 2021, Microsoft presented its new operating system – Windows 11. Despite the fact that the early beta build leaked online long before the official presentation, a lot of innovations and details continue to be revealed. And one of them – the company got rid of the “blue screen of death” (BSOD).
But this does not mean that Windows 11 will not “fall into error” under any circumstances. The “screen of death” in the system remains, but now it is black. This is the first major innovation in BSOD since 2016, when Microsoft added a QR code to the “death screen” that leads to the corresponding Windows support page. By the way, the sad smiley was introduced with Windows 8 in 2012.
The BSOD mode itself appeared a long time ago – already in Windows 3.0. Then he offered the specialist the opportunity to diagnose the malfunction of the equipment and memory of the device. BSOD is essentially an internal error in the Windows kernel and usually includes a dump that can help an administrator analyze the cause of the failure.
Apart from the black color, the “screen of death” remained unchanged. It seems that Microsoft wants to fundamentally get rid of the old design everywhere and in everything. By the way, in this respect the company still has to work hard – Windows 11 is replete with various “antiquities” and traces from the past.
