When your Windows-based computer crashes then a Blue Screen Of Death aka BSOD appears. It shows information on what crashed your machine. While it’s here for years now but the color is going to change to green for insiders from next year.
Recently, someone leaked an internal Windows 10 build . While people found lots of changes and new features but according to Matthijis Hoekstra, a Microsoft employee, people were not able to find a “big change” in that build.
Cool to read all the new features people discover in the leaked builds, but they missed a big change!, Huge change!. curious when its found.

People focused and started guessing what that new feature can be. Then Matthijis hinted “Green!”. And it did not take much time for the big change to be unveiled. Microsoft enthusiast Chris123NT found out the new change fairly quickly.
OK, I'll give 1 hint. Green!

Later, Hoekstra cleared that Microsoft is making the BSOD green on Windows 10 Insider Preview releases so that it becomes easier to distinguish between Production and Insider releases. So in future, if you are using an insider builds then in place of BSOD, a GSOD will appear. This change was made to help providing customers better support as it is going to be easier to understand whether the user is running an insider release or a production build thanks to the color code.
