Windows, Windows, Windows Everywhere

In the accompanying photo you can see one of the ubiquitous TV screens sprinkled all around the Spanish subway system. They display up-to-the-minute information about arrivals and departures, in real-time, also ads and other commercial announcements. Very useful!

But wait, look closely: This is a Windows based application, if you can believe it! There's a big fat Windows error message displayed in the middle of the screen! If you look really closely, you can tell it's in Spanish!
