"With the conversion of the Hotel Jan III Sobieski, a four-star hotel in Warsaw, Poland, Linux advocates have another example to cite in touting Linux's power outside the IT department...."

"The business world wants to see examples of Linux running mundane but essential jobs such as word processing, invoicing, accounting, payroll, and inventory management. Only then will we see substantial growth in Linux outside of IT departments. Is it possible to run an entire business on Linux? Sure. The story of the Hotel Jan III Sobieski proves it."

"Poland may not be the first place you'd look to find interesting Linux implementations. Nevertheless, Tux is alive and well in the land that only 10 years ago was called the "happiest barrack in the communist camp." You can find Linux hard at work in many new technology companies, as well as in the IT departments of many companies listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange."
