BTW, it was a spontaneous reboot loop in a non-Microsoft embedded OS (VxWorks, as I recall) that crippled one of the Mars rovers for a considerable time.

yea, that's the story - it's a shame too. A truely reliable OS doesn't

Microsoft's excuse is purely irresponsible.
Heaven forbid they ever use it on a fighter jet or spacecraft. I would
seriously doubt that a windows os would pass any of the regression tests
