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.
SCO's platform has provided us with a very stable and reliable system.
SCO UNIX has been a dependable platform for thousands of McDonald's
restaurants over the past 10 years and we're looking forward to migrating
our restaurants to the current version."

Subject: Mc Donalds dumps SCO
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.
