Current HOWTO: Medicine-HOWTO


Preface

1. Preface

Life is the first gift, love is the second, and understanding is the third. -- Marge Piercy

1.1. About the Document

This document is part of the LINUX DOCUMENTATION PROJECT - LDP.

A Japanese translation is proposed by Shouhei Nagaoka, see the Linux JF (Japanese FAQ) Project.

Note: Werner Heuser, no longer maintains this LDP.

1.2. Update

The most up-to-date version of this document will be at the mung.net

1.3. About the Author(s)

Gerardo Arnaez: I am an internal medicine doctor. I am extremely concerned with the state of medical informatics.

Werner Heuser: Working as a system administrator in the computer departments of two German hospitals I get inspired to search for medical applications created with Linux software. Besides this HOWTO I have written the Linux-Mobile-Guide, Linux-Infrared-HOWTO and the Linux-Ecology-HOWTO.

1.4. Copyright, Disclaimer and Trademarks

NOTE: This license has changed to GPL license.

Copyright 2002 by Gerardo Arnaez. This document may be distributed under the terms set forth in the GPL license.

This is free documentation. It is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, but without any warranty. The information in this document is correct to the best of my knowledge, but there's a always a chance I've made some mistakes, so don't follow everything too blindly, especially if it seems wrong. Nothing here should have a detrimental effect on your computer, but just in case I take no responsibility for any damages incurred from the use of the information contained herein.

Though I hope trademarks will be superfluous sometimes (you may see what I mean at Open Source Definition : If certain words are trademarks, the context should make it clear to whom they belong. For example MS Windows NT implies that Windows NT belongs to Microsoft (MS). Mac is a trademark by Apple Computer. All trademarks belong to their respective owners.
