Debian on the cash desk?

Debian on the cash desk? It's true. The German "Lebensmittelzeitung" has
reported (German only) that Globus (, a German
supermarket chain, converted
about 480 computers in their cash desk system to Debian GNU/Linux. The
entire system is designed so that two cashiers can share one computer (a
486/25MHz is used most of the time). After positive experiences they now
want to shift more functions to Linux, and also want to install an
automatic installation feature in order to automatically push new
functions or other updates to their cash desk systems on a nightly basis.
