Safe mode is meant as a means of diagnosing
a problem with your computer
or more specifically the configuration
of your computer's Operating System
. The smallest misconfiguration can cause catastrophy
- so why is it good to start the display at a higher resolution
and with a larger color palette
If I have a problem to fix with my display drivers (or modules), I do not want my "safe mode" to also be affected by these problems. Maybe that's just me, though.
