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.

I don't see how that's relevant at all. Windows only ships with a single language, I would therefore expect it to produce all its error messages in the language it ships in, and that language alone. Most other OSes ship with multiple languages available on the same installation media - in those cases it would make more sense as there's only one version of the OS involved, not a different one for each language.
