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”.
Finally, a use for the Hyper Text Coffee Pot Control Protocol.
#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.
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?
Well I was gonna make a Java comment but now I ain’t got much to say now.
Next time they can put os X on it, so it can make cocoa.
Well I guess it’s a good thing that it is not on Rails, that could get messy (I could go on all night).
Good thing it doesn’t run on Win ME. No one would ever get any coffee.
But is it RFC 2324 compliant?
But where are the Ctrl+Alt+Suppr keys ?
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…
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.
Well, what do you expect? If it ran on UNIX then only fat guys with beards could get coffee out of it.
Who cares if it can play Blu-Ray DVDs if it makes &^#$ coffee?
