Hi All,

This is on topic... really.. 

I got to see one of the new lotto terminals being rolled out around WA
at the moment.. Touch screens etc.. 

Well They run Linux! I believe the distro was some form of gentoo
derivative as the kernel still has the gentoo label. Bootup and
shutdown of the machines give a clear init and shutdown sequence. Boot
is via LILO. Also gives a nice Xwindows default cursor on initialising
X. :)
