ABSTRACT
This article reports on SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 from Novell to be installed on all the in-store sales terminals of W.S. Badcock Corp. across more than 320- stores in the U.S. W.S. Badcock also plans to use SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 to run its extensive point-of-sale store management system, taking advantage of the SUSE Linux Enterprise platform to manage both front- and back-office systems. Veryl White, director of technology infrastructure for W.S. Badcock, said their goal is to have one common platform across the enterprise, and SUSE Linux Enterprise from Novell will completely meet their needs at a reasonable cost.
