The concept is, that each customer can easily build his own installation or live medium. The medium can be CD/DVD, USB memorystick or installation via PXE. The target medium to be installed on can be either a hard disk or also a USB memorystick. After installation (or after booting the live medium), the customer has a ready-to-use configured system with the following benefits: - his POS middleware is ready-to-use, following the configuration he has chosen when building his medium - the POS hardware and periphery of our Beetle systems is supported by our own kernel (modules) - the system itself is configured (devices like COM ports, display(s), touch screens, etc) - his application is already installed and may be auto started on system bootup > Over the course of the next few days, we will put together a > definite policy on > such matters and publish them on the wiki. That sounds good :-) > btw, I hope Wincor Nixdorf is planning a huge donation to the project! That's a good idea. When business is running with our "WNLPOS CentOS", I will motivate my boss for donating.

I see your idea, however maybe the requirements we have (see above) are too complex for achieving this.
