As well as giving Windows 8 a completely new looks with a new UI, it looks like Microsoft has also replaced the standard Blue Screen of Death (BSOD), which is usually filled with lots of text telling you what went wrong with a more, friendly version.

The photo below, from Chip Hazard shows the new BSoD, and as you can see it now comes with a sad face, and a much easier to understand message than the previous BSoD’s.

For starters, it’s not found on Earth but in a far away system orbiting a star. See, the Super-Earth is a category of rocky planet within a ‘habitable zone’ where proximity determines whether water deposits may or may not exist. A super-earth is also much larger than our Earth (hence ‘super’), having heftier mass as a result. Not surprising, since water is oh so essential to supporting life. The picture down south? Not a Super-Earth. In case you didn’t recognize it that’s Reach from the Halo universe before the Covenant laid waste to it. A stand in if you will.
