Your bank will pay Microsoft to keep running its ATMs – don’t panic, not so soon!

This news sounds alarming, but it is mostly inaccurate as AMTs use XP Embedded (aka XPe), which is a componentized version of the Professional edition of Windows XP. XPe is mostly employed for cash registers, industrial robotics, NAS, navigation devices, AMTs, etc and it will be supported until the 12th of January 2016.
