According to today's BBC ( June 10, 2004 ), the
new Type 45 "stealth" destroyers, which are to "provide
the future backbone of the Royal Navy" are to
be "controlled by state-of-the-art computers using
a Windows NT operating system."
BAE Systems is to have the first one launched in
September 2007. A price of $ 3.6 billion is stated,
but its not made clear if that's for all 26 of them,
or just one. I suspect its for just one. Either way,
it's good money pissed away. Windows NT !
These things will be a menace to everyone, including
their own crews.
