Hello,

I work for a company that is developing a point of sale software:

Point of sale or point of service (POS or PoS) can mean a retail shop, a checkout counter in a shop, or the location where a transaction occurs. More specifically, the point of sale often refers to the hardware and software used for checkouts – the equivalent of an electronic cash register. Point of sale systems are used in supermarkets, restaurants, hotels, stadiums, and casinos, as well as almost any type of retail establishment.

And we want it to work on a Linux platform, what are some recommended programming languages that would work perfectly on a Linux platform?

C and C++ compilers are freely available for download or come installed in some Linux distributions (aka gcc and g++).

However, your application requirements should figure in to selecting the best language for the project. PoS software is a business application. COBOL is usually used for business software, whereas, C and C++ although considered high-level languages are quite good at interfacing with assembler (machine language) software if that is a requirement of the PoS software your company is doing.
