In our company we have around 80 POS (point of sale) work stations, All of them using Wndows OS (many versions from Win98 to Vista) until now I haven't had problems with BSA, but I know that lot of stations are running with proper licences for the OS, another thing that I am considering that our business in next few years is going to expand around 30 to 40 %. Now I am planing to try to slowly move my POS system to Linux and low costs OS's so we can save portentous amount of money. Most of hardware is coming from IBM and Lenovo. My question is:
Can someone advise me what version of Linux and POS Software I should looking for ?
Is there an attested combination for POS in retail of these two things.
I saw that one competng retail chain was using Redhat OS and some Java POS software.
