So is Virgin Atlantic from what I recall they developed the app. in
house. Unfortunately, don't have the link to the article.
Biz are realizing the cost of software. For a similar app. on Windows
CE (or whatever it is called now), the airline would have to pay lic.
per passenger seat plus for the server.
The Linux solution: development cost (once), software deployment cost
(lic.) to all their aircrafts close to $0.
