A BSOD has no unnecessary gibberish. All information is useful.

this is a possible BSOD from the 90's that makes me remember good memories... :)

implementing this BSOD... in the future... some people may laugh, after a computer-crash

Amiga Rulez :o
What does this help? When a BSOD shows up then with a reason which makes it impossible to continue. This is no WIndows 9x where you get a bsod when the cd is ejected. Mouse button is no good idea too, because it needs to be indepentent of most drivers to be sure it will show up when needed and does not fail with a driver.

ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

Bluescreen has its own driver and has to be as simple as possible, as there still is a rare chance for it to fail. I can understand rethinking the text displayed, adding some usefull data, but we cannot over-complicate it too much.

Windows lets you change BSOD colors so why can't ReactOS?
