Cybercafes, which are places where Internet access is provided for free, provide the opportunity for people without access to the Internet, or who are traveling, to access Web mail and instant messages, read newspapers, and explore other resources of the Internet. Due to the important role Internet cafes play in facilitating access to information, there is a need for their systems to have well-installed software in order to ensure smooth service delivery.
