My company manufactures Public Internet Kiosks which we place in various places such as shopping malls/centres etc. When we started off, we used a Win2K solution with a custom browser package based on the IE DLLs. As you can imagine, more time was spent rebooting hung kiosks and so on than installing new sites. After about 5 months of this madness, I approached the boss and suggested that we migrate to Linux. At this stage I was completely unaware of the XUL UI/Application framework. Imagine the pleasant surprise I got during investigation when I realised that I could build the entire kiosk using just Mozilla and a few other programs. Now, one year on, our uptime is upwards of 95%, the administration of the network (now 200 machines+) is much simpler than the 60 odd Windows machines in the past. All in all, it's been a good year :)
