blue screens

Post by Delfi » Sat Jan 22, 2005 8:27 pm

a simple suggestion, couldn't you replace the boring winnt-like bluescreen:

with something rather more interesting like:

what do you think? :D

the ascii art is here:

Hmm... not bad, ;)
but I prefer something simpler, like an emtpy black screen with one sentence on it:

You are going down.

:lol:

HeH, that's amusing, and I like it. However you'll have to provide more info upfront (Exactly what win32k.sys did, etc, etc) and maybe remove some of the un-PC commentary ;)

I think it has to be clear what caused the crash.
It can look 'good' (if a BSOD can :P )

yeah, i was too lame to rewrite text from actual bsod and put that
stuff in, it should have real description in there, i am just suggesting
to make it look better so it is improved over windows bsod :)

maybe we could even customize the title text and ascii art
around the bsod text :shock:

I like it, if it's possible to do that. I would really make it look special against Windows. I don't know how hard it might be though, so the devs might not go along with it.

0xDEADBEEF (The "0x" prefix means something too ;)) is like some standard that involves the end of the stack. I don't know about badfood...

Actually, I like the "omg". Ever seen a linux kernel say "omg"? :)
