Highway POS System
Currently, we've got Linux 2.0, demand loadable kernel modules and connectivity to Windows, Novell and AppleTalk. Most importantly, we never hear the words, “Hmmm, it looks like an OS problem.” We still have the occasional problem with an application or utility, but it's rarely anything critical, and, if it is, we always have the source code and access to the author.
We aren't the only retail petroleum POS vendor to come up with a PC-based solution. We are, however, the only Unix-based one. There have been attempts based on Windows 95, OS/2 and even DOS. So far, no one's really succeeded. Our product will hit the streets around mid-year (1997). It's already done wildly better than expected in its first field trials. We have confidence that it's going to be a winner, due in large part to Linux.
