QNX Most people haven't heard of QNX Software, though they've likely come in contact with it. The real-time operating system is used where software failure can lead to catastrophic consequences, even death - from high-speed trains to air traffic control towers to highway toll systems. It's also used in more than 100 different types of cars on the road.

Your whole posting could be applied to ATMs as well, and they *do* fail.

He was referring to 'Automatic Teller Machines'... which DO fail. Most used to run OS/2 but they started changing over to Windows and they seem to fail quite often with BSODs, 'No more memory' etc...
