Because at least I can reboot software. I can't reboot my booster spontaneously combusting or a massive fuckoff hole in my heat shield. Theres also the fact that software hasn't caused a manned hull loss.

For what it's worth, it's built with the possibility of failure in mind. From Wikipedia:
>Dragon uses a "radiation-tolerant" design in the electronic hardware and software that make up its flight computers. The system uses three pairs of computers, each constantly checking on the others, to instantiate a fault-tolerant design. In the event of a radiation upset or soft error, one of the computer pairs will perform a soft reboot. Including the six computers that make up the main flight computers, Dragon employs a total of 18 triple-processor computers.

To be fair, the shuttle was more complex and had to be manually flown to land, Dragon is much simpler and fully automated and doesn’t need the full CHAD cockpit like the shuttle

I'm all for modern glass cockpits, even ones including touch screens, but there's no denying that Dragon has some questionable design choices.

>Front End running on Chromium for the displays
There's no reason for any aerospace company to go this route with something thats so mission critical. A native solution would have given them more control, and performance off the bat. There's less likely to go wrong when you're not starting off by building on top of a multimillion line of code web browser.

Imagine being this guy that day.
You're just chilling at O'Hare and taking pics of the hot new DC-10's. You capture pic related and take a break.
Then you look up again and the motherfucker's missing an engine and struggling to take off. You ready the camera but as you take the picture, it starts banking hard left. The next picture you take, there's no plane, there's just a fucking fireball behind the hangars.

if everyone thought like you we'd still be slapping Gwomp down for trying to make cave art with ox blood. software testing is a pretty fucking robust science. your computer crashes because it can run whatever generic task you ask it to and they don't all play nice, and also because you're downloading furry porn from russian torrent sites. how often does the ECU on your car crash, while it's calculating how much fuel to inject and when to make a spark thousands of times per minute? how many glass-cockpit planes are falling out of the sky today compared to the all-manual jets of 60 years ago? software isn't intuitive, but it doesn't have to be unreliable. it's only unreliable when Boeing makes it.

Maybe you mutts should start building planes that don't fall from the sky for no reason before pointing your greasy fingers at others.

While I'm not familiar with spacecraft I work on a containership and I'll just say touchscreens are the most fucking annoying thing compared to tactile input especially when you need to use electronics while working and are wearing gloves or have dirty / wet hands.
