No more blue-screens for Windows! Use green, it is a more relaxing color!

Green should replace blue for all Windows error screens from now on. Instead of enraging the hapless Windows user, it will sooth them, and they won’t mind a failed nVidia (or other) driver stopping their system.  I got this idea after reading this article: http://mcpmag.com/articles/2011/06/06/color-my-powershell-world.aspx on changing your PowerShell error messages to green from red…since red has such negative connotations that it shouldn’t be used.  This reminds me of this article: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1101790/Teachers-banned-using-confrontational-red-ink-case-upsets-children.html where marking incorrect answers with red demoralizes “the children”
