Lowe’s uses cutting edge software in cash registers
I kid Lowe’s, I kid!
But seriously, Windows stopped supporting XP in 2009. The last service pack came out the year before. More importantly, this particular Lowe’s didn’t exist back then.
So… Yeah. Starting to figure out the problem with the self checkout system. Of course, I’m sure checkout programs are fairly simple and businesses shouldn’t (and won’t) spend money fixing things that don’t need fixing. On the other hand, when your self checkout is closed because your decade old software is spinning the entire time I was in the checkout area… might be a problem.
