[NTOS:KE] Fancy blue screen with elegant stack backtrace #1444
BugCheck screen is the main sight of ReactOS. In my previous PR, I made screen look like in Windows 10, it even included QR-code library. But I realized - it was a bad idea. Reasons:
So I decided to close that Pull Request and start working on another one. And here it is. This is more user-friendly blue screen, it includes a lot of useful information for developers, and there is no sad emoji.
JIRA issue: CORE-15474
I wanna answer before you ask/complain
Q: Intro text has different font and style unlike other text
Q: Stack backtrace shows not all entries
Q: Make switching between blue screen styles using registry/file/holding Shift/little pony
If I understand the output correctly, the last row is supposed to show the last valid entry in the backtrace. I find it quite confusing though. I suggest instead to remove any NULL entries as seen in the 3rd screenshot and in case of more entries than displayable, just add a last line with something like "and 7 more"
