Microsoft takes the fight to Iran

Sod Gordon Brown and his "strong words" to Iran about nuclear energy and weapons. The real people making a difference and stopping them get to far are Microsoft if this picture of their nuclear system is anything to go by.

Who'd have thougth that Microsoft Windows could play such a cruicial role in the fight against nuclear proliferation in Iran huh?

I can just see the future here. Press delete, the question "Do you want to fire this warhead? Press delete for yes!"

Isn't Google doing Freeware versions of Nuclear Powerplant control systems anyway?

Please tick the box if in addition to the Google Toolbar you want a vast Nuclear Arsenal.

From memory, Windows license Ts and Cs included a ban on its use in anything nuclear or indeed safety critical or safety related.

Further, Iran is on the banned list of states for the export of goods to from the US or which originate in the US - Windows is covered by that.

Does that give the US permission to bomb them now?
