Is it this hardware: http://www.bleepplc.com/epos-solutions/TS-750.php

It seems to have a intel processor so it should be possible to get kolibri os to run on that. If the cf card is seen as a harddrive or you can boot from a usbstick. Is there a bios option for booting from usb? There are installers for windows which install the kolibri os next to windows installation. You can make a backup off the cf card and than try to install kolibri os on it. Kolibri os is free no charge. Whether you can great a market around it with app selling. I do not know.

Good day to you!

Please, mind the following:

1) Even if you have a spare CF-card for installing OS "Kolibri" on it -- the OS-usage may result in causing defects to the POS-computer's hardware! (I am not sure, and I have problems with recalling similar troubles in memory, -- but it is possible. Probably, the OS wasn't tested on your hardware yet, and you will be the first tester, -- so, please, be careful!)

2) The OS may react unpredictably on yours input-hardware manipulations on POS-computer!
As I understand from taking a quick-look around information about the hardware (http://www.bleepplc.com/epos-solutions/TS-750.php), -- it supports USB-devices, so you can try to connect USB- mouse + keyboard (which may be riskful itself; you the user and tester, again) and, probably, it will work.

3) There still may be no support for touch-screen input, fingerprinting, magnetic-card reader, and so on.
Will you manage working without it?
___

Anyway, OS "Kolibri" has text- and spreadsheet- editors, and a calculator (seen some icons here: http://kolibrios.org/en/screen), -- which can suit some POS-tasks solving. The spreadsheet editor (named "Table": http://wiki.kolibrios.org/wiki/Table/) would be enough for manually registering text-info about sales (e.g. date and time; titles, amounts, and prices); and it supports "CSV"-file format, which seems convertible to "XLS".
___

You choose.

If you choose to try "Kolibri" -- here's the distributive: http://kolibrios.org/en/download (you should, probably, select the "Universal image Flash/HDD").

Good luck!

That is why I think he should better try linux. There are open source pos solutions:

https://www.linux.com/forums/applicatio ... ware-linux
And keep in mind that only the "normal" computer functions may run. Card reader might be a problem. Touch screen should work if detected by linux. I would try a live distro first. You can make linux live usbsticks from many distributions. Try Puppy, bodhi linux old version or if it is enough to have a calculator and notepad try kolibir os, but no touch drives there, I guess!

Is Linux easy to get the hang of for this sort of thing?
