but here goes...

The ThinLinx device shown in the New York Times article has been significantly enhanced over earlier versions and we will be using it in the very near future to provide our Linux Point of Sale development platform to customers. The very low cost of this device, its very low total cost of operation and our POS development platform will be priced at a fraction of the cost of any other company using Windows and PCs for their POS system. We will also provide a BSD solution for anyone who prefers it. We have been at this for a very long time and will use the ThinLinx ARM device to replace the mini-itx platform we have been using since 2003. POS on the ThinLinx embedded ARM devices is fortified with modules such as rsync, cups, X and SSH, while notably avoiding the overhead of Java, desktop managers and relational databases. We look forward to a handheld version, too.


Submission + - Bill Gates funds anti-net neutrality Congressman

amigoro writes: "It has emerged that Bill Gates funded an anti-neutrality Congressman at the last election. He gave $2,000, the maximum possible, to Rep. David Dreier (R-CA), who voted against Markey's "Net Neutrality Act of 2006". He also meant to be working closely with another anti-net neutrality Congressman, Cliff Stearns.

This is hardly surprising, considering the fact that Microsoft stands to lose, not gain, from net neutrality."

X is the answer to the question; "Where does all that software come from?"
