 Apunix Large-Scale Kiosk Deployment

MandrakeBizCases reports that Apunix is using Mandrake Linux for a large-scale kiosk deployment.

"Not only was this the first Linux kiosk deployment: it was also simultaneous to all 160 TravelCenters sites coast-to-coast, making it the first, largest and fastest deployment of its kind. Furthermore, all of the content creation, content updates, and database interfacing was done remotely by Apunix in San Diego, California. All the kiosks access a central Oracle database server at TravelCenters' corporate headquarters near Cleveland, Ohio. The kiosks had to be plug and play as there was no on-site technical expertise available at each of the TravelCenters. The kiosks were unloaded, hooked up, remotely installed, tested, and then all turned on for public use the same day."
