The (Un)Likely Marriage of Linux and Medical News

Valdes wrapped up the interview by pointing out that similar challenges (and opportunities) exist for all Linux and FOSS news sites.

"Most have no feelings at all one way or another about Linux or Windows. They mostly want turn-key systems that work," he said referring to the feeling of a typical doctor. "Most physicians work very hard at medicine and spend all of their time thinking about how to get through long days," he concluded.

This is the same sentiment about software, that's shared in other fields.

Dr. Valdes is committed to raising awareness of Linux in the medical community and LinuxMedNews represents a successful model for people that are interested in running a specialty news site.
