    Phoronix: Linux Can Have A "Black Screen Of Death" For Kernel Panics

    With some Linux users not liking the recently showcased new Linux "Blue Screen of Death" for kernel panics, Red Hat engineer Javier Martinez Canillas who has been one of those involved in the new DRM Panic infrastructure showed that it can also be a "black screen of death" if so desired...

    Honestly.. What's the point of introducing BSOD?

    The biggest reason why I use Linux is due to its verbosity. I like knowing what's going wrong

      That's what makes Linux so great, choice and the all inclusion, no discrimination mentality.

      You don't like blue screens of death? You don't like red screens of death?

      How do you fancy a black screen instead?

      Now all we need is a green screen, a yellow screen and what the hell, let's also get a white screen.

      Since all other problems have been solved and we can now worry about the screen color of kernel panics, maybe we can have a rainbow colored screen that only shows up if the kernel panic happens in June.

        I guess VFX artists would really appreciate a Green Screen of Death

          Currently when the kernel panics, I think the image on monitor just stuck hanging there.

          So for people who are less interested in seeing what was last shown on the screen but want to know more immediately that the computer is hanging beyond auto-recover (without a reboot), it is already useful.

          Now the problem is just that, maybe some people want to keep seeing what was last shown on the screen 🤨

            Now that's just racist towards blue people.

              Careful! Windows "Insider" releases have GSoDs already.

                I, for one, demand clear screens of death, or failing that, screens of death that look like migraine auras.

                  Linux can have a black screen of death. As a treat.

                    Black is alright, though I would prefer other vibrant colors that are far from blue. I'm ok with yellow text on red.
