I blame the morons using Microsoft software in the first place. If they read the EULA they would know that it is not for use in a situation where lives are at steak and if they were anything but morons they would keep up with the news and contact Microsoft for support before this happened.
It never ceases to amaze me how many people use Microsoft products without having a legal agreement with them for support then complain when the products don't work. You really would think that after decades of news about Microsoft being criminals people would choose another OS or have an actual contract with MS.
