I was at Mr Lube for an oil change today and they have LCD screens that
face the driver with details of the service and charges.  I was
pleasantly surprised to see the desktop of ubuntu Hardy in the
background behind the service/billing application.  

Of course, many businesses use F/LOSS for customer-facing interfaces,
but this is first example I've come across involving a Linux desktop.
I'd be interested in supporting other businesses that put the symbols of
open-source in front of their customers.
