Network World has an interesting list of the worst uses they’ve seen for Microsoft’s premier disaster, Windows. Some of those uses are seriously odd–there are always alternatives one would hope. One of my favorite uses:
To display a static green arrow over the open TSA security lanes at Detroit Metro.
I kid you not, at the main security checkpoint to get into Detroit
Metro there are monitors over each metal detector. The ONLY thing
those monitors ever display is a big green arrow pointing down. Oh,
occasionally they display a blue screen with a Windows error notice.
The only other daft use I can think of for Windows is as a primary operating system…
