You'd be amazed at how many things run Windows...ticket machines, traffic signals, ATMs, locomotives...

I read an article that had an interview with an engineer for one of the two big locomotive manufacturing companies in America (the two are Electro-Motive Diesel, formerly a subsidiary of General Motors and now a subsidiary of Caterpillar, and General Electric). Basically, he said "Windows is an excellent operating system. The problem is when you have people throwing hardware together with haphazardly written software that causes the OS to crash."
