As a result of customer feedback we have ported our well-proven technology to this increasingly prominent platform. Adoption of Linux is spreading through the industry at an impressive rate, becoming more and more accepted as a solution for enterprise-wide solutions and this matches exactly with Laser-Scan's company philosophy."
