Windows Fails with ATM Machine

As usual, TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) and robustness of Windows, can not help in ATM Machine. I have captured few Screenshots of Windows throughing error messages and Malware warning message.
Can you imagine , an Malware warning message on an ATM machine that is exposed to public, and how a Virus can mess up things.
from my humble point of view, MS-Windows can not deliver the level of security or robustness that an ATM machine and banking in general may need
Screenshots say it all!!!!

I recommend Using Linux on ATM machines, if you are in banking and want to see demo or discuss Linux on ATM machine with me, please feel free to drop me a line.
