The Dutch Free Record Shop has decided to deploy stripped-down Novell Linux Desktop machines as the point of sale systems in their retail shops. From the looks of things, the entire company is moving over to SUSE-based solutions for all of their needs.
"At the moment, almost all shops in The Netherlands and Belgium already use the KDE Desktop. After that phase is complete, the migration team will go to Norway and Finland to migrate the PCs used by the Free Record Shop and Bravo chains. 'It's a fun project' says Arrachart, 'We can show that you can save costs with ICT, while at the same time allowing greater possibilities in the way the shops are organised.' All the cash registers in the Netherlands Free Record Shops are geared towards simplicity and effectiveness. The Head of ICT concludes 'so Windows is not a viable option.'"
