Also, because Evergreen’s implementation is so lightweight, you require only the most rudimentary of hardware to get started.
For instance, our current selfcheck machine is an old thin client device with a usb stick plugged in for a hard drive, running Debian, LXDE and iceweasel for the interface. It works really well for the purpose, and the cost of the “computer” comes in around $50 each via ebay. If you don’t mind using more electricity and having a larger system, any desktop build in last 15 years ought to work just as well. The only thing I plan to change soon with that setup is to get openkiosk installed in place of/on top of iceweasel and to switch out the keyboard, mouse and surplus monitor we are using for a large touch screen monitor. Long story short, not only is it there, but it’s awesome. ☺ Have a good day. Joe Joseph Knueven Director Germantown Public Library 51 N.
