lol, nice. I didn't think any gas pumps used Windows. Makes me wonder if I'm being charged the right amount... I usually just put $20 in my tank when I fill up. It's about half my tank and it gets me though more than a week driving back and forth to work.

I know a bank drive thru thing used Windows 2k pro. I was in the parking lot across from a bank that was just opening and there was 2k pro loading...

You will be suprised just how many devices like that run windows,i have seen a few ATM's that have a BSOD,the advertising screens in the mall also run XP (I have seen workers repair them,when they were booting it was XP).Did you have to pay?

Yeah that's an English pump, it was in the paper that a load of them crashed. The ATM up at the top of our road always gets BSOD's.

Most pumps either run OS2 Warp 2 or Windows.

OS2 does seem more stable, never seen an OS2 crash at an ATM or pump.

However, I do believe most of ours are OS/2 Warp. Well...modified.
