Re: Using Windows?
"Aw, come on! The NHS is a large enough customer that if they wanted it on a Linux or BSD system the supplier would do the port."
The NHS is, but bits of the NHS aren't, software running microtitre plate readers for Lab tests is quite specialized and there just aren't that many labs in the NHS in the UK. It took us forever to get a version that would run under Windows 7.
I think you'll find that replicated across many machines and services.
