Computer World Australia: TAB not so keen on Windows

Linux is providing TAB Queensland with a standard operating
environment and enabling applications that could not be run on a
Windows environment, according to Lindsay Taylor, project
co-ordinator of Telebet.

“Windows, it is very useful for some applications,” said Taylor.
“But it doesn’t make the grade for what we are doing.”

“TAB QLD is using around 300 Linux boxes as telephone betting
terminals in their call centre, and an unconventional sound
recording solution.”
