Windows Built Ford Tough

Every time Microsoft talked about putting its operating systems in cars or at the center of our home entertainment systems, I'd scoff, knowing the only thing that crashed more than Windows was Nascar's Bodine brothers (two points if you know their first names!).

Now Redmond is prepping a deal to put Windows in new Ford cars, letting drivers check e-mail (please pull over to do this!), navigate or Web surf.

Despite my earlier skepticism, I'm ready to give Microsoft the benefit of the doubt (though I still don't want Windows operating my brakes!).
