[K12OSN] OT - Open Source Kiosk Solutions

The touch screen technology I'm familiar with works as though it's a
mouse, so I suspect it would work pretty much right out of the box.

I guess the more I think about it, an simple website with all of the
information would be very easy.  And as long as it runs full screen with
no navigation buttons it wouldn't look like a website.

Any suggestions for touch screen stuff?  I am worried about linux
drivers to support this.

I know a low budget thing is to give a mouse, but they want this to be
"impressive" technology.  You know, to show how advanced our school is
among others.
