I have the CentOS Extras XFCE on one of them (for which I could
actually get the right additional RAM), but most just run headless
(and were installed with the text installer).

I don't use them as cashier machines, just got them second hand.
They were so cheap that I bought one just to try, and then found it so
good that I bought the other three...
(I'm probably not the only one on this list who has computers all over
the place, and a wife who gave up asking when you come up with a "new"
one)
