Modern technology gives us many things.

Linux adopts "blue screen of death" like Microsoft

αποκτά τη δική του εκδοχή της «μπλε οθόνης θανάτου», γνωστής ως BSOD. Το Phoronix αναφέρει ότι η τελευταία έκδοση του συστήματος εκκίνησης και διαχείρισης διεργασιών σε λειτουργικά συστήματα Linux έρχεται με μια υπηρεσία systemd-bsod που είναι σε θέση να δημιουργήσει ένα μήνυμα full screen.

The "blue screen of death" that started from the will now also be used on Linux as a fallback tool for logging errors. If a Linux system fails to boot, it will generate a full-screen message that displays a QR code to get more information about what's causing the boot problem.

We are likely to see this to appear on many Linux distributions

The systemd-bsod feature is still "experimental" and GitHub notes that it may change, but systemd is a core part of most Linux distributions, including Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian, and Red Hat. So, we are likely to see this feature appear in many Linux distributions during 2024.

The BSOD briefly changed to black in Windows 11, before Microsoft brought back the blue color

Note that Microsoft has experimented with various changes to the BSOD over the years including adding a sad face to the screen in Windows 8 in 2012 and QR codes in 2016. The BSOD briefly changed to black in Windows 11, before Microsoft is rolling back this change shortly after the OS launches in 2021.
