I read in the paper this weekend that the Type 45's are to be fitted with Microsoft NT electronics and it would cost too much to update it. Now I'm no computer expert but as it is stated this system crashes often surely it was not beyond the brains of the MOD to leave room for updates in computer system. The ships depend on it and,although I'm no fan of the French,they are spot on with electronics and the Yanks would also not persue such a stupid decision and risk servicemens lives by not having methods to update whenever needed. Even a poor computer user like me is on Vista so what's going on? Still the MOD says they are happy with it,lets hope the excocets fly pretty slow or we will be in deep shit. Or can someone put me right as it seems crazy to me.
