      All jokes aside, this would actually make a nice beginner project for someone who wants to get involved in systemd development.

        Black screen is when the system is running normally without a GUI. So it makes sense for it to have a different color. Red would be logical but it's true that blue is long established in this context.

          Creativity at its finest! Different colors, customizable, even configurable. With meaningful messages. You guys seem to miss one major point:
          This comes from Lennart Poettering - a microsoft employee. Microsoft is hell-bent on taking the fun out of computing.

          You will get:
          • Blue. Microsoft blue
          • There will be a message. Saying something like "There was a problem in the SysLABwmx subsystem. The system has to restart now"
          • There will be a QR code. It leads to a microsoft website saying the same thing

              Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart. We're just collecting some info and then we'll just restart for you.

                  Judging by all the comments, I take it none of you is aware that a Red Screen of Death already exists in the Linux world, google Linux RSoD and you will see tons of examples, here's one:

                  After selecting boot from HDD in the UEFI boot manager, if you press "c" to go to grub command line then exit and attempt to boot again the system will RSOD.


                  The first time i ever saw a RSoD on Linux was over 20 years ago.
