Had to go to Burlington last night, I loath shopping, but this trip had pleasant surprise.
Shannon is checking out, I’m standing there and look up at a cash register screen across the counter. It’s interesting because these registers don’t have the typical cash register looking screens. They have what looks like a 15″ flat panel.
So the register I’m looking at isn’t being used and is at a login prompt. I notice a familiar looking logo and walk over to have a closer look.
It’s the RedHat “shadow man” logo! So these registers are running X and Linux. I smile, Shannon pays, we head home.
