Well those touch screen 'check yourself out' at the grocery stores are
using NT =)
saw 3 of them go down at once one day...
I just chuckled to myself and walked past to the bubbly cashier with the
smile and personality...

mind you if I only have 1 or two items I'll hit the 'checkout kiosk'...
wonder if anyone has developed those kiosks with a linux solution to
save $$ for
HUGE grocery store chains...*shrugs*...an idea for one of you guru's out
there tired of working for 'the man' =)

If you watch closely you can see that Lowe's is using what looks like a
Linux thin client, at least in their wallpaper department.  It is
definitely a kde implementation.

Autozone also uses Linux.  Looks like as a login from a terminal

In both cases, I happened to catch a terminal as it rebooted.
