Wired News is reporting that 65% of bank ATMs in the US will be running Windows by 2005, resulting in a surge in the purchase of pillow slips, metal boxes and shovels.

Australian banking analysts are reporting that banks will now have a new excuse when robbing customers blind with exorbitant bank fees; with bank IT departments already preparing for the change by pre-booking job advertisements for extra IT support staff. It is yet to be seen if the Commonwealth Banks new IT rollout, which prompted the sacking of over 3000 positions, will include Windows software, although it is believed that if it does, the banks promised levels of increased customer service may be difficult to achieve.
