Windows for public displays

So here is yet another example of public information displays showing Windows blue screen of death. The real problem here is that the operating system was designed to be a desktop system so there would always be a user there to press any key to restart the system.

Because the builders of these systems chose the wrong operating system to have the system around, these displays require a maintenance technician to come around and plug in a keyboard to reboot the system.
