[rt-users] kiosk mode?

We've managed this with a spare iMac:

   - I think we used Safari, made sure it remembers sessions and stores
   account info (or another browser, either way the browser rebuilds the
   session during startup, seems to work for us).
   - When we start the Mac it automatically logs in and during login it
   automatically starts the browser.

>From there all you have to do is make sure that the kiosk user has proper
privileges and that the dashboard is configured.

I should think that something similar should be pretty much doable for any
OS, but you'll have to depend on the browser capabilities.
