Public Instability

After viewing this gallery of snapshots you'll walk away with a better understanding of just how many things out there are running some form of Windows. (and not running them very well)

Captured are everything from blue screens to Windows error messages in very public places for all to see. I wonder what Microsoft's marketing budget is for this sort of publicity

Most of the casino slot machines are Windows 2000 pro. running specialized software. Still think you can beat the slots?

Most, if not all of the pub quiz machines in the UK run windows.
They sometimes crash or have a reboot and you can see what they are running.

Most new ones use Win2000. You see some running Win95
It's also surprising at the low spec of the machines.
