Win2K crash strands 800 planes mid-air; leads to at least 5 in-air “near-miss” incidents. What I want to know is how they got the okay to deploy Win2K, since I’m almost positive the Microsoft EULA (that’s the End-User License Agreement for you non-techy types) forbids the use of the software in “life-critical” situations. (Google isn’t being my friend this morning, or I’d cite chapter and verse.) Yet another reason to never climb on a plane again…
