Ubuntu 'weaponised' to cure NHS of its addiction to Microsoft Windows

Good luck.

But for many places 2.5 years isn't long enough to move over even if it was a proven option right now. Existing contracts for many clinical systems are 3 years+ as a minimum and moving off those will have a major cost in terms of finding an alternative system and training etc.

I'd love to have the flexibility of not being on Windows but no way will anyone be fully off it by 2020 for this, not without a huge chunk of additional funding and staff.
