Novell targets Linux at retailers

Novell is targeting the Linux operating system at the retail industry via a new point-of-sale/service package based on its SSE Linux Enterprise Server and Novell Linux Desktop products.

By CBR Staff Writer

Novell Linux Point of Service 9 is based on the server and desktop operating systems and offers retail users a choice of five customizable client images based on their application and service requirements.

Client options range from a stripped-own 30MB image needing only 64MB of RAM to a more advanced version with open source office applications, web browser functionality, and KDE- or Gnome-based desktop functionality.

The retail package will be available from Novell in the second quarter, as well as IBM Corp, in the next version of its IBM Retail Environment for SUSE Linux, and through a new relationship with Wincor Nixdorf.

Through the relationship Wincor Nixdorf will embed Novell Linux Point of Service 9 in its products, including the Beetle point-of-sale platform and store server systems.
