This coffee maker runs Windows XP. Overkill, of course: Windows 3.11 would have clearly sufficed.

    I think if you look closely you’ll see it’s “Vista Capable”.

  2. SamSam says:

    Good thing that it doesn’t run on a Mac, as there’s no guarantee that they’ll continue to support the latest (and freshest) Java…

  3. Itsumishi says:

    Wow with the quality of these puns even I can contribute.

    It’s a good thing it’s not running XTreeGold otherwise the coffee would be old.

    Good thing it doesn’t run on Win ME. No one would ever get any coffee.

    #2, history dictates that rather than use the standardized HTCPCP protocol, Microsoft will hastily bring to market some closed-source, functionally similar but technically inferior proprietary protocol for use by their Windows devices, just to thumb their noses at the Internet and coffee communities.

    Brings new meaning to caffeine crash…

    I know everyone has been avoiding this comment but I can’t resist.

    This thing really should run on Java.

    Next time they can put os X on it, so it can make cocoa.

  9. Anonymous says:

    But where are the Ctrl+Alt+Suppr keys ?

  10. SamSam says:

    So how much does the XP license add to the price of this thing, just because they didn’t know anyone who knew anything about Linux?

  11. Whiteops says:

    Well I guess it’s a good thing that it is not on Rails, that could get messy (I could go on all night).

  12. Not a Doktor says:

    Well I was gonna make a Java comment but now I ain’t got much to say now.

  13. aj says:

    But is it RFC 2324 compliant?

  14. trr says:

    Well, what do you expect? If it ran on UNIX then only fat guys with beards could get coffee out of it.

  15. swag says:

    Who cares if it can play Blu-Ray DVDs if it makes &^#$ coffee?
