When Bugs Aren't Allowed

kaos_ What about the operating system? (489 comments)

Doesn't the underlying operating also play a big part in the reliability of the software? Even if your code is correct, can you say the same for what you run the code on, or what you compiled/interpreted it with? Then there is the hardware.

It reminds me of many medical devices that have software running on Windows internally. I remember having LASIK done and the device looked like it was run by a PC with a Windows app. I did not turn out blind.
