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.

Well still it doesn't invalidate the first sentence. The Windows Kernel panic is multi-language.

No other OS does that to my knowledge.


I wonder how being in the end-user language make the low level and techie kernel panic message more easier to understand...
But, sure, that's a kinda unique feature, indeed.
Maybe for a reason others OSes don't find it that useful, but hey your mileage could vary.
