Why does Diebold use Microsoft?

Because even Microsoft says their Jet database isn’t meant to be using in a complex environment with many concurrent users. And an audit showed that, indeed, a Jet database may have been corrupted in Ohio in 2006 , as two tables that should have had the same data in them didn’t, plus date and time stamps were missing, certainly signs the database can’t handle the load.

Intoxination says, why not use Linux instead? Or SQL Server, for that matter… Both can scale hugely.
