"The KOSIX project is poised to offer a viable alternative to conventional kiosk operating systems."

"Touch Dynamics has announced today the development of an open-source software (OSS) project to develop an industry standard public kiosk terminal operating system."

"The purpose of the Kiosk Operating System (KOSIX) project is to create an operating system platform for public terminals that is stable, secure, powerful and open to everyone. In following the Open Source tradition, KOSIX is based upon the GNU General Public License, which allows the greatest amount of freedom for all who choose to adopt it. KOSIX will continue to evolve in a fashion similar to other Open Source projects, with features and functionality being dictated directly by the developers who seek to use it. Like other Open Source projects, KOSIX is not owned or controlled by any single person or entity, and will remain free for all to benefit, both private and commercially, so long as the beneficiaries respect and uphold the spirit of the license it is bound by."
