  • I had a friend set up an internet kiosk for a coffee shop in Idaho a couple years ago, running Linux... It seemed to work out quite well. People really aren't that picky about their OS when it's not their computer, as long as it's got pretty buttons to click on. He did his own custom GUI with only a few buttons, one for mail, one for web browser, etc. This was probably a good 5-6 years ago, so a lot of the customers weren't as savvy, but I think the principle still holds. Present them with a bare minimum of options they are going to want, presented in a easy to understand fashion GUI fashion, and they will be happy with Windows, or Linux, or Macs, or OS/2.
