Wait, what? Can I see that again?
Embedded in a gazillion buttons which look as if pressing them must be an extremely pleasuring experience, there is a screen showing a Windows XP Professional logon screensaver...
Bottom line: Embedded operating systems are practically everlasting -- a system within a broadcast installation is developed not to be updated, but to work. And back in the days that console was installed, XP more than likely was the latest hottest and state-of-the-art shit. In a nutshell: That's life.
Side-note: Still better see an XP in a TV prodction setup than as base for intensive care equipment in a hospital. Tough... if you take a closer look at the first picture, the screen to the very right has a somewhat younger windows on display it seems.
