Linux and the NHS - Computer Business Review

Linux and the NHS - Computer Business Review: "I remember once seeing a T-shirt with the following words printed on it:

Apple for style, Linux for security, Windows for Solitaire
I also remember the much trumpeted agreement with Microsoft in 2004 to provide desktop software for the National Health Service (NHS) in England that was so large, it brought down the contract costs through volume discounts for the rest of the UK public sector. Last week we had the announcement that Novell would be providing security and systems management software for the English NHS through the NPfIT, but it may be another part of the contract that will take some shine off the earlier deal for Microsoft."
