Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"I work with Quickbooks Point of Sale which is considered, by most, to be the de facto standard of Point of Sale systems. The clients that use Quickbooks POS are medium to large businesses that can actually afford both the software and the support necessary to ensure the system is up and running 24/7. But for those clients that don't have the budget to afford such a system, I have to turn to other choices. For the longest time I had adopted NolaPro – which wasn't open source and difficult to teach. That isn't to say it's a bad choice, it's not. In fact NolaPro is an outstanding system that has a TON of features (including a full accounting, ecommerce, and inventory system). But for those who need a simpler inventory/POS system, and want this system to run on the Linux operating system, what is the best option? One choice is LemonPOS.

"When I first ran into LemonPOS it had serious installation issues. That has since gone away. Now, getting an instance of Lemon POS is not nearly as difficult as you would expect. In this tutorial I am going to show you how to get LemonPOS up and running and then show you around the tool a bit. NOTE: You will need MySQL up and running in order for LemonPOS to work."
