Subject: Open-sourcing business operations code?

I'm working with a vendor on his proprietary POS program.  He's open
to the idea of running it under Linux; no problem there.  Since they
solely use the program in-house, they seem like a perfect case for
freeing their software.  He's wondering, though, if anyone else has
done this.  They're a Microsoft shop, so they're not at all familiar
with this open source stuff.  Anybody have any experience with a
retail vendor open-sourcing their business operations code?
