I've been building industrial control systems for a good 20 years now, and all based on the windows platform (okay some embedded stuff out there too), and other than hard disk or power supply failure the systems have been rock solid. I still have some XP machines out there just chugging away, and no one want's to upgrade them, if they are still working.
some machines have user interaction, others don't, I've got one machine (at least) out there that hasn't been restarted in close to 10 years, still ticking away with no issues. honestly the only real troubles I've had were do to system admins and IT people mucking about "tweaking" a system, then i get called out, put everything back the way it was, then they tweak it again, so i get called out again....
STOP TOUCHING THE #### COMPUTER!!! YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING!!!

I've had control system's running on every version of windows since XP, the only true reason of the stability is: no windows updates can be installed, because there is no internet at these facilities Smile | :)
