To be fair, designing a system that could be dead in the water if one component
bluescreened probably wasn't a wise idea either, and one totally separate from
the actual choice of operating system. Even Solaris and AIX crash if
sufficiently provoked.  But it's no surprise that the same designers who
created it with a single point of failure then turned around and implemented
the critical component with likely-to-fail thechnology.
