Microsoft to be sole supplier of Engine Control Units for Formula 1 cars from 2008

Ok, now this is just scary. From 2008, Microsoft are to be the sole supplier of ECUs (Engine Control Units) for Formula 1 cars. Given the reputation of Microsoft for supplying robust software, I don’t think I would want to get in one of those cars and drive 200mph knowing that Microsoft is controlling my engine. Actually, worse than this, if their software controlled the braking system, I don’t think they would ever pass the saftey tests..
