Re: Oh, yeah...

Presumably he meant media server, which are very much targeted toward running lots of large displays/projectors etc, and a lot of them run on some version of windows. Eg Hippotizer, Avolites ai, d3 etc. However the windows they run is usually pretty locked/stripped down and you'd like to think they'd have this covered.

We do the odd live event using cheaper desktop machines and back in the day I was caught out by a random windows update which rebooted the machine while I wasn't there, which showed the whole reboot to desktop cycle on the big projectors. That was embarrassing. But it's a good way to learn for the future...
