Welcome to 4690Info

Hello! This is a hobbyist website for someone who is quite interested in an obscure area of technology: a specific set of operating systems and applications developed by IBM for usage in retail point of sale (POS) environments.

While you may not have heard of the things listed on this website, you most likely have interacted with them at some point in your life (at least in the US). Walmart/Sam's Club, Kroger & its family of stores, Costco, Piggly Wiggly, CVS, previously Walgreens and others use or have used these operating systems and POS technology in their stores.

Please make yourself comfy while I work on my site :)
