[News] Cancer Centre Runs GNU/Linux and Very Pleased with It

Hash: SHA1

Government, care providers shouldn't rely on proprietary technology to
safeguard lives 

,----[ Quote ]
| They could also look into adopting GNU/Linux to meet their needs. The Roger 
| Maris Cancer Center in Fargo, North Dakota successfully runs GNU/Linux: 
|     The proper care of our cancer patients would not be what it is today 
|     without [GNU/]Linux... The tools that we have been able to deploy from 
|     free software channels have enabled us to write and develop innovative 
|     applications which... do not exist through commercial avenues.   
|     - Dr. G.W. Wettstein
| Hospitals and doctor's offices that lack the human resources to deploy free 
| software are better off sticking with paper records for now, at least until 
| greater progress has been made towards improving user interfaces, 
| interoperability, and reliability.   



The RIAA vs. 19 Year Old Cancer Patient

,----[ Quote ]
| Among the RIAA's latest targets in its campaign to sue its customer base into
| submission is a 19-year-old cancer patient. Ciaro Sauro was ruled a music
| pirate after failing to defend herself in court against charges from the RIAA
| that she was sharing music files online. Ms. Sauro has said she couldn't
| defend herself as she is hospitalized once a week, and vehemently denies the
| allegations that she is a pirate.
