Re: OMG... really!

A lot of vendors, especially those peddling pathology systems are never going to warrant running their system on a Linux distro.

The phone calls to the vendors' sales and marketing department start thusly: "Hello, I run procurement for $NHSTrust. We're reviewing the market and asking vendors about Linux support. Do you have Linux support?"

Remember the two important things about salesmen:

- They never want to lose a sale let alone an existing customer.

- You can tell when they're lying because their lips move.

Many development teams have been told to make good on something their sales teams have promised they had.
