ATM's that I have worked on and supported ran XP Embedded. Most ran just plain
XP Professional with a Sygate Firewall installed. Why Diebold chose a consumer
OS is beyond me - save yourself some licensing costs and go Linux! The USB
devices (the card reader, cash dispenser, depositor, receipt printer were all
USB) were always going wonky requiring a complete power down to fix.
Apologies for the /drift. :)
