    Unfortunately a lot of ATMs /pos machines etc. run XP embedded.
    To upgrade them to W7 or w10 would be a logistical nightmare and cost a fortune.
    We all know how much banks love spending their own money.

    Mate, Banks never spend their own money. Everything is passed on. This is why the Bank Tax is such a stupid idea. I suspect the only way to bring them to heel would be to somehow institute fair dinkum competition, and I just can't see it happening.
