The old platforms used in ATM include OS/2 or RMX. Most of the ATMs used worldwide are Microsoft Windows operating system like Window XP. 
Some banks like 'Banrisul' in Brazil use 'Linux' in their ATMs. Engineers is manufacturing ATMs which only operate on Linux. It is the most secure OS for ATMs working on commands like NCR NDC+ or NDC.

Yes, it is true that debit card and credit card are a popular way of getting money any where in the world. With an ATM machine, you can use an ATM card to access your bank account to check your balances, make withdrawals, and others. Both debit card and credit card are linked to your bank account.

Both the debit card and ATM card have similarities and differences. While both can be used on an ATM machine to check your bank account balance and withdraw cash, an ATM card can only be used in an ATM machine to check balance and withdraw money but sometimes it can also be used to purchase items in a mall depending on the establishment as if you are using a credit card.

The ATM card is swiped to the magnetic card reader and the amounts of the items are deducted to your bank account. You cannot use an ATM card to purchase something in an online store and it doesn’t have an expiration period. A debit card is a lot similar to a credit card.

It can be used to purchase items in the mall, make reservations, and even make purchases online. You can also use it to check your balance in an ATM machine as well as withdraw money. It has an expiration period similar to a credit card. Since you are interested about the operating system that runs on an ATM machine, around 425,000 ATMs in the United States are powered by Microsoft Windows XP.

But after Microsoft pulled the plug on the Windows XP support on April 8, 2014, around 38 percent [38%] of these ATMs had already migrated off Windows XP after the month’s deadline. This is according to ATMIA or the ATM Industry Association. Majority of the ATM operators have already moved their systems to Microsoft Windows 7 since this is the next available Windows upgrade for ATM systems.
