    "NHS Connecting for Health has negotiated a £21.8m agreement with
    infrastructure and software services supplier Novell which will save the
    NHS up to £75 million over three years, compared to previous arrangements"

    - but that statement is only from the customer, of course - I guess the NHS
    needs to read "Get The Facts", study a few MS-sponsored studies, and better
    understand TCO?

    Ooops!...." .....and use Novell’s SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES), which
    can reduce the total cost of ownership of running both clinical and
    non-clinical applications by and for the NHS"

    "This deal with Novell also reduces the barriers for the NHS in using Open
    Source, as it secures access to an enterprise class Open Source platform
    along with, more importantly, affordable support, maintenance and training
    to help our NHS staff make the transition."
