[News] GNU/Linux Enters Internet Café

Hash: SHA1

Internet Café Invaded by Linux Desktop

,----[ Quote ]
| You may ask why I'm happy about this recent experience. ---Well, I really 
| want Linux to succeed, and seeing it now being used in a Windows-dominated 
| Internet café business is a telltale sign that the Linux desktop is geared up 
| for the mainstream crowd. So, cheers to that!

| The software that runs the Discover Station is simple to manage and very 
| elegant. Running Linux, it is secure, throughout -- no issues with hackers or 
| viruses, and as important, there is almost no chance that a user's personal 
| information gets compromised. As soon as you end your session the terminal 
| restarts, blowing away all personal names, passwords and cookies, so security 
| is a real strength.     
| Managing the Linux-based system is very easy. The company has a management 
| console that lets you maintain all of your systems, regardless if you have a 
| small network of four workstations in your hotel lobby, or hundreds of 
| workstations in coffee shops across the nation. You can modify the systems, 
| change the graphics on screens, and update the systems remotely.    


Zencafe Linux for Your Internet Cafe

| I’ve actually seen one shop use Ubuntu on its machines, about half of the 
| machines there and as far as I could see, his customers were happy and 
| productive.  


Firefox Live, BoothCD, LiveKiosk Review Roundup

| After much consideration, I found that the most logical choice was
| indeed, the now aging and unsupported, BoothCD. Even with this
| project falling into the cobwebs of non-support, it was able to
| work with the hardware I tossed at it. I purposely used older,
| non-itemized components to recreate an instance we might see at
| a new, privately owned coffee shop or bookstore.

| "We recently used the Linux Desktop Multiplier to deploy 2,205 desktops
| in 105 South African schools. We are pursuing 'Multiplied' SLED 10
| opportunities with other corporate, education and government customers
| who require large numbers of low-cost, high-performance desktops."
| "The Linux Desktop Multiplier enabled us to deliver a 12-user Internet
| cafe on two SLED 10 desktop computers at our BrainStormer UK event,"
| says Peter Atkins, Managing Director of MindWorks Inc Ltd.

| The Internet cafe will consist of 12 independent Linux workstations
| running on two Intel Pentium 4 3Ghz desktops with 2 GB of RAM. The
| Linux Desktop Multiplier software has been used to provide low-cost,
| high-performance Internet cafes at other major technology
| conferences including GWAVACon, GroupWise European Summit and
| BrainStormer UK.
| "By eliminating nine out of every 10 physical PCs, the Linux
| Desktop Multiplier enables trade show organisers, school districts
| and governments to drive more value out of their fixed budgets," says
| Trevor Poapst, Director of Global Marketing for Omni. "The Linux
| Desktop Multiplier's '10-for-1' value proposition is ideal for
| Linux-based computer labs, Internet cafes, retail POS terminals
| and call centres."

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
