    Point of Sales springs to my mind, but I might be wrong.


    What's funny, is we have an Alternator/Starter tester at work....and it seriously runs of Windows XP, to my knowledge, not even embedded (btw, is Embedded SOC?)...but yeah....seems like a sloppy way to do things.

    Just checked my app, Acronym Box and found a few that may be relevant:
    -Primary Operating System
    -Point of Service
    -Persistent Objective Service

    Is it a cash register? I have seen those referred to as POS before.

    Oh geez, thanks for the morning chuckle.

    I work at a female-oriented company and one of our production Oracle db servers is named PORN01. It follows our server naming convention (P=Production, OR=Oracle, N01=Node 1). An email went out earlier this week that we were decommissioning our "PORN" server, LOL.
