Re: WTF

I'm not making up anything - and I didn't say anything about a medical device.

Nobody said anything about Windows automatically updating drivers.

Unexpected input may or may not be thoroughly vetted by the device manufacturer.

I've seen all manner of items running Windows under the covers that could result in someone's death due to a malfunction. Starting with the control stations for heavy machinery in factories.
