Why not Embedded? ATM's Running XP Professional...

,----[ Quote ]
| This time, I happened to be there when it suddenly BSOD'd and began a
| reboot cycle. Obviously, to BSOD it needs to run Windows, and moments
| later, that was confirmed. But that's not the story here -- believe it or
| not, most ATMs run Windows nowadays, and there's absoloutely nothing
| wrong with that.

| There's a million reasons why an ATM should must be RTOS, be it Linux or
| VxWorks or Windows CE, but even if you don't go with RTOS, Windows XP
| Professional most certainly isn't the answer. Especially if it's not even
| SP2.
