Possibly not suitable for mission-critical deployment?

You know that wonderful feature in Windows where it decides after a while that it *will* shut down and install updates, no matter what the user may have to say about it?

Well, I'm assuming that that's what just happened to the Planet Rock DAB radio station I (and probably a few thousand others) was listening to - halfway through a track, it stops dead and a worried-sounding DJ appears and tells us "Erm, sorry about that, the computer that was playing that track has just told us that 'Windows is restarting' and it's shut down the radio station. Erm, Pete, can you do the news now?"

The station I usually listen to, The Arrow, appears to no longer be available to tune to - a situation that my alarm clock tends to celebrate by crashing.
