Java Failure Can Lead to Death

A writer at Java Developer Journal has found out that Microsoft has a sense of humor. This writer was reading an End-User License Agreement for Microsoft Desktop Operating Systems, with an excerpt that contains the following:

“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”.
