"Developed by OMNIS Software and sponsored by the International Data Group (IDG), the Linux OS-based kiosks will supply visitors to LinuxWorld Expo this year with information about the exhibitors and their products, directions to specific booths and facilities, and allow attendees to vote for their favorite product as well as order product literature online."

"The future for the Linux OS is very exciting, however, there is a fear that some businesses will be deterred from using it because of the lack of business applications, particularly at the enterprise level. The development of the Information Kiosk on the Linux OS, in such a short time period, is a real demonstration of what can be achieved by using the tools of OMNIS Software."

"The Kiosk solution, running on Red Hat Linux, was developed using OMNIS Studio in just four weeks. This is possible because OMNIS is a powerful 4GL Rapid Application Development environment designed to produce flexible, scalable business solutions in a very short time frame."
