HTC had capacitive touch screens way before Apple.

Got two LeCroy's at work, one running W7 and another XP, the universe would probably implode should I hook up my own rigol and use the PC interface with the touch screen.

Imagine that, controlling a rigol from a LeCroy...

On the subject of ATM's I saw one rebooting at a bank and it ran OS/2! God knows how old they are. This is at Three Kings shopping center at Auckland.

Those are OK security wise, OS/2 has very good built in paranoid security, and banks used it a lot. My local bank has ditched XP aside from in the Diebold ATM network and has gone to RHEL, so that they could keep all the old computers and get an upgrade without a hassle. All run a terminal client, and connect to a VM on the branch server, so they are a lot more secure, and have paranoid access control ( verisign football, password and swipe card needed to log on).

Gotta say .. cool tool :) ... 140 K ... Just for the sake of it here is another extreme toy - http://www.home.agilent.com/agilent/product.jspx?nid=-33202.1010838.00&lc=eng&cc=US - the price made me choke. The darn thing is more expensive than my house !!!

BTW .. OS2 running on an ATM is nothing out of ordinary. I work for a very big credit card company (can't say which one but is one of the big ones) - if you believe they have old mainframes which are programmed in assembler. You heard and read right I said ASSEMBLER, not a mistake :) . And don't believe that because of that their system are fast or reliable, a cluster with few nodes will blast that mainframe into dust in terms of speed ... is just that they a so afraid to touch them that nobody is allowed to even clean the dust off the damn thing. Just an old monstrous piece of junk that gets afraid any CTO only when you show it to him :) . Decision .. do not touch it !!! build anything that you can around it and hide it from anyone's eyes. And if you need an CPU replaced ... about 4 millions $ a pop (yes not a mistake again).
