Using Java could lead to death
Monday 2 January 2006 @ 5:12 pm

We all know that Microsoft doesn’t like Java. But did you know that Microsoft in their license agreement even warns users that Java technology is potentially deadly?

Yakov Fain discovered this when he was reading a Microsoft end-user license agreement:

The software product may contain support for programs written in Java. Java technology is not fault tolerant and is not designed, manufactured, or intended for use or resale as on-line control equipment in hazardous environments requiring fail-safe performance, such as in the operation of nuclear facilities, aircraft navigation or communication systems, air traffic control, direct life support machines , or weapon systems, in which the failure of Java technology could lead directly to death, personal injury, or severe physical or environmental damage.
