    Lol this thread is such crap. When did the anti-woke crowd became more toxic and annoying than the woke crowd?

    This feature is pointless. Speaking about it renders the discussion pointless.
    M$: "Here, you can put this black bandage over your wound."
    Client: " Why don't you fix the bike preventing me from getting hurt in the first place?" You sold that to me, I payed! I expect a quality bike, you advertised it so"
    M$: "Black bandage also hides the bleeding and looks nice"

    I think i have had a BSOD twice in W10 in all the time i have used it and in both times it was caused by drivers for Vr stuff that had been unoffically modded......but it has been a very stable system.

    Probably, Microsoft chose to replace blue with black, because it's the least attention-drawing background they could manage.

    I mean, c'mon, when that bright blue hits, and lights up your area like a hydrogen bomb, and your start having all the "Nelson Muntz" laughter and finger-pointing aimed at you, it's a bit humiliating, no? (Try changing the "Critical Stop" sound in Windows to Nelson Muntz on a co-worker's PC. Bliss!)

    Hearing, "Throw that thing in the trash!", is a bit depressing. Now, with a black background, you just might be able to keep your cranky Windows issue on the q.t.

    I was on a red-eye flight from L.A. to New York a few years back where the flight attendant had to ask a guy in an aisle-seat to quit with his blue-screening Windows laptop because it was keeping others awake.

    You say this literally every single time. The only toxic and annoying one in these threads is always you and you alone, no matter how light hearted and funny the thread is. Go anywhere else on the internet if woke backlash bothers you, you'll feel just fine there.

    Didn't see it. Doesn't make you less annoying or toxic. The woke backlash won't stop until wokeness stops.

    I don't really care what color they make the screen. It's about time they tried adding information that's actually useful for the average user.

    crowds that follow a trend in 1 direction or the other are always toxic. We're just conditioned to see the "other side" as being the toxic side because it runs contrary to our own beliefs.

    And your response is no less toxic than you perceive his to be.....

    There was no wokeness in this thread. No one was complaining about the political impact of the change until @RavenMaster mentioned that it WILL cause SJW crowd to complain - but they weren't/aren't. No one is. I'm on the Windows 11 subreddit, Neowin forums, etc - I don't see anyone complaining about the racial implications of the change at all. In fact even googling it only turns up people like you, complaining about people that haven't complained yet.

    But honestly that's not really the issue here, the issue is a larger one with political posts and moderation:

    The problem I have with political posts like the ones here is that people get to state a political opinion or expression, one that is charged and unrelated to the topic, knowing any response to it effectively derails the thread and locks it. This makes people not want to respond or engage them because either way the initial poster get what they want. It's effectively flamebaiting and I wish it was moderated more strongly. In this case it got particularly out of control until @vbetts came and cleaned it up.

    @vbetts deleted a bunch of posts that I think most people would find inappropriate for this forum. That was mainly who my post was targeting but I guess i struck a chord with Neo Cyrus.
