    On the other hand, count your blessings. After seeing what happened when our systems were upgraded to Win 10, I'm pretty grateful Win 10 isn't being used for the nuclear arsenal. :vbeek:

    Then again, if all the nuclear powers upgraded their systems to Win 10, we might have permanent world peace (you know, because frozen computers couldn't be used to stage an attack). ;)

    I'm all for keeping our most important system on old hardware and software. We should be engineering specific gear to replace it that prioritizes security over accessibility, but since we're not going to do that and consumer and even enterprise gear is so insanely accessible that enough can't be said about how horrific it is. We're running out of words to combine with 'bleed' to describe deep unthinkable exploits for which the only real solution appears to be 'replace everything' with the next generation of things we'll find out soon is just as bad. Long before we could get to complaining about the target rich environment MS presents, everything else is baked for accesibility. Not only was the old gear made in an era before accessibility, the few vectors they have baked in are so obsolete that security by obscurity starts to play a big role.

    I hate seeing articles bemoaning the state of our nuclear cnc, not because they're wrong to bemoan, but because I'm fairly certain the people writing imagine that wintel or gaagle would be substantial replacements, and I'm not 100% certain that the people in charge wouldn't agree with them. Far, far far better extremely out of date than most of the alternatives. I'm not sure I've ever spotted anyone I'd want spearheading an update, not in government and for different reasons, not in tech either. I can't think of any problem I'm more concerned about someone 'solving', and that's a tough category.
