BeOS & Derivatives Michael Lotz added code to generate QR-code for the KDL (Kernel Debug Land) ouput (which pops up when the kernel crashes). No more blurry photos with debug output, but a QR code which decodes to the clear-text KDL debug output. Here's one of the relevant commits, an example showing a QR code, and text from decoded sample QR code.

Works pretty well for Windows. You keep on slagging off the OS but it does these important things well ;)

The primary storage medium is already known, so as a programmer myself ... writing log.txt to the root partition should be f--king trivial.

I cannot fathom why anyone would think this is difficult to do.
