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


Re: Smartcard recognition, really?

"The issue is with SmartCard authentication for specific roles which you can only do with Windows OS clients due the software provided by NHS Digital."

I found myself in quite a few situations where the provider/vendor said their application/smart card reader works only with Windows, which turned into "I see you made it work perfectly but we don't support it" to then announcing that their tech team made a huge effort and now they support Linux as well. All in matter of days/weeks.

I would not be surprised if within days there is a client working perfectly with NHS Digital software.
