link, link, link. Looks like the old adage, 'nobody has ever been fired for choosing Microsoft' proves true again. Although I do think that the NHS has struck a deal on their terms rather than Microsoft's, and interestingly are not barred from evaluating open source options in the future. And I am hugely surprised that the much underfunded NHS allocates $100 billion a year into IT This deal is an important feather in the cap of Microsoft. Oh and for you non-Brits out there, the NHS is the National Health Service, a publicly funded health care service whose philosophy revolves around the concept that healthcare should be free, available to all and funded by taxes (note not National Insurance!). A little tid bit for you all, the NHS is the third largest employer in the world after the Chinese Army and Indian Raliways.
