Check out this story about a Robocoaster on Gizmodo. I couldn’t agree more with the last comment:

Are you really going to strap yourself to a 30-foot tall, 8,000 pound ride that’s controlled by a PC running Windows? Hate to take a cheap shot here, but I wouldn’t even trust a PC to control my air conditioner, let alone some gigantic robotic arm that could potentially hurl me to my death.

Of course, it makes me question what other potentially life endangering devices are actually controlled by Windows software.
