Help Microsoft Design a Better BSOD for Windows 7

Illustration for article titled Help Microsoft Design a Better BSOD for Windows 7

The Blue Screen of Death sucks, and it's about time for Microsoft to redesign it for Windows 7. Let's give them some help, shall we?


For this week's Photoshop Contest, I want you to come up with a fantastic new BSOD for Microsoft to include in their upcoming OS. Now take note, this is a redesign, not a rewriting. Any entries that are a blue screen with white text will be thrown out. Seriously, I don't need to sort through 500 BSODs with the text changed to "Should have bought a Mac. LOL!" Think outside the box here, people.

Send your masterpieces of crashiness to me at with "Redesigned BSOD" in the subject line. Save your files as a JPG, PNG or GIF, and use a FirstnameLastname.jpg naming convention, using whatever name you want to be credited as. Send in your entries by next Tuesday morning, and I'll through them and pick the winners and put the best of the rest in our Gallery of Champions. Get to it!


OMG! Bacon!

Awwwww! I wouldn't mind the BSOD as much if it were the PSOD (Puppy screen of death)
