[REBOL] Re: rebol and kiosk systems embedding ...

Hi Pekr, Two things come to mind. They aren't answers to your questions, but just some thoughts based on my experience. 1) For debugging purposes, you want to be ablel to plug in a keyboard and get to the OS very easily. 2) If you're planning for it all to be touch screen based, everything they use to navigate and enter data has to be *large* and with more space between. Finger tips are much larger than the mouse pointer, and you can't see exactly where it's going to land until you press the screen. This greatly affects how much you can fit on the screen (especially if you have an on-screen keyboard), but it is also probably the most important lesson I learned from the one kiosk project I worked on. --Gregg
