Burlington Coat Factory and Linux
2003-09-15 12:50:17 PM
I went to our local Burlington Coat Factory the other day, (had not been to
this particular store in about 6 months) and low and behold all the POS
(point of sale systems) where running Redhat Linux. You could see the
RedHat on the modified (KDE or Gnome, couldn't tell) "Start" button a mile
I knew they where running their servers with Linux, but I didn't know about
the POS stuff.
Anyway, i just thought it was pretty cool, and really shows how a company
can run everything with Linux.
I bet they save a ton of cash on M$ licenses.
