    Longhorn to get Red Screen of Death

    Longhorn to get Red Screen of Death
    Microsoft has taken a novel approach to ensuring users see the
    hated Blue Screen of Death less often: it has created a red
    version for Longhorn to indicate more serious problems

    But will it be any more informative?

    Nahh it will still say "geek" speak like the following ;

    " IRQ_LESS_THAN OR EQUAL TO" in AA001 10010 00A00A 00A001

    Why can't it say something on the lines like ;

    Memory issue - get some better memory - this has errors galore... look I'm crashing %n times a day

    Great red instead of blue, I am sure it will still happen. To be fair to MS I dont ever think I have had a blue screen crash under XP.

    I'm reminded of Microsoft's assertion re Windows 3.1 as opposed to 3.0 - "We've got rid of the Unexpected Application Errors!"; yes, by renaming them to General Protection Faults....

    You would have thought it was possible. Makes you think why they havn't done it.

    Only because you saw the damn thing so often!
    Mind you at least finding the causes was more logical
