openSUSE Medical

openSUSE Medical is a distribution of openSUSE made especially to address the needs of doctors. It is based on openSUSE 11.3. It is distributed in the form of ISO image files and VirtualBox/VMWare images. It includes carefully selected software for doctors' practices, clinical environments, and medical students. The software selection encompasses everything required to make computers productive for either home or medical use. This distribution includes a LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP) stack that is needed for developing or hosting PHP-based Web sites and all other major development tools. The aim of this distribution is to provide complete resources for medical doctors, clinics, and medical students as well as IT admins running labs at educational institutes.
