    Check out this story from '98' concerning Windows NT and the US Navy

    I believe another Navy ship suffered a similar fate while on patrol, though I can not seem to locate that particular story.

    Now imagine an A380 or 744 crusing along at 38,000 ft and something like this happens.

    When I visited the National Weather Service office in Portland, Oregon I noticed that all the computers in the office were UNIX based systems and you did not see a Windows based system anywhere in the office. I asked about this and was told that they were using UNIX systems exclusively for reliability reasons.

    This type of recommendation would not be necessary with a UNIX type of system!!!!!

    You realy thought that would happen? thats odd, you just said "good ol photoshop tricks" then said "777s dont display that kind of warngin when it have a electrical failure". Oxymoron.

    Kev's right, think before you speak.

    Windows EULA states the software shouldn't be used for mission critical applications. I think ATC was listed as an example, I remember Nuclear Plants were though ..
