Hi, I work for a coffeeshop in Holland, at the moment we have a small setup of 2 computers for public use. 1 is already running Debian/GNU equipped with: xfce4, Gimp, Steam (testing CS/Half-Life), RTCW, FAKK2 Firefox 0.9.*. As a MSN client we use dMSN (dmsn.nl) which is made in java and is quite acceptible for people who are not used to alternative software. The other machine is still running Windows (98) with the same games, and also Firefox. People do not make use of the tabbed browsing function yet, but people who are regular`s are often tipped by me... and thus they start enjoying the tabbed browser feature. The only real problem I have with both system is that some Java gaming sites run to slow (i.e. throwing darts, the darts move to slow to the board), but this is probably just a hardware problem.

Headbang We also have about 4 private machines in the building for administrating, recently I installed FireFox and Thunderbird on 1 of the machines (win98), a recently acuireqed laptop is being installed with Debian/GNU and firefox to, in the beginning the user of the laptop didn`t event wanted internet connected to the machine, but since FireFox and Thunderbird are running on the Windows 98 machine, he feels happy enough with it.

As the rest for the machines, they still use windows and payed software, like adobe and Office. The machine (Win98) which runs Firefox/Thunderbird will move when the laptop is done and will also be converted to a Debian/GNU setup. It will run OpenOffice, Scrubbiz, Gimp, Firefox and Thunderbird.

As im working on a pam-usb internet pay method the whole public part is going to run Debian/GNU, the games (c-strike and halflice etc etc) run better then on the windows machine..
