Re: [News] Another Win for Linux in the Restaurant

After takin' a swig o' grog, Roy Schestowitz belched out
  this bit o' wisdom:

>> Wasn't McDonald's on SCO systems?
> Yes, it was. I read that somewhere as well. It seems to have upgraded.
> McDonald's pilots Linux-based electronic signage

   Case Study: McDonald's

   "The everyday business of a McDonald's restaurant requires a stable
   operating system that can give round-the-clock performance," said John
   Doty, Director of US Information Technology for McDonald's Corporation's
   Store Systems. "We are very pleased with the performance of SCO UNIX.

    Couldn't help grinning at this announcement. SCO's biggest (maybe
    only?) remaining customer dropping them like a bad habit in
    favour of a modern operating system. 

Of course, Novell's link is broken.

That poster had a funny sig, too:

   "War: The way Americans learn geography"

Ummm, well, OK.  The network's the network, the computer's the computer.
Sorry for the confusion.
