When I first heard the story, I didn’t believe it. I mean, really, a Paris airport forced to shut down because a computer running Windows 3.1 crashed? Seriously?
It wasn’t a joke. It was real. The airport had to close down because a 23-year-old operating system, never known for stability, crashed. Better that it was an operating system than an airplane, of course, but still!
I shouldn’t have been surprised, though. All of us are guilty of hanging on to obsolete software and hardware. I kept running Windows Server 2003 for months after Microsoft cut off its support lifeline.
