Comment Re:conventional malware = windows malware (Score 1) 234

Windows is not intended to be used in life-critical situations such as medical hardware or nuclear reactor control. It's right there in capital letters in the EULA.

Someone's being a cheapskate here and decided to use windows instead of paying to develop a custom medical OS.

Why develop a custom medical OS. Just about anything is more appropriate than Windows. There's QNX, LynuxWorks etc.

What does work more effectively on Wikipedia is "promoting the bad" by using weak sources or completely mus-representing, or making up, what the sources say (whoever checks a reference is being used properly for a relatively unknown organisation anyway) and "hiding the good". This is because people are generally more sensitised to shilling, probably because it happens more often, than they are to a psychopath owning an article.
