Volunteers tailor Ubuntu Linux to UK’s health service

Gijs Hillenius at JOINUP on May 09, 2017 wrote:A group of British IT health care specialists have tailored the Ubuntu Linux distribution for use by the UK’s national health service (NHS) on its workstations. The alpha version of NHSbuntu was unveiled at the South West CIO Forum on 27 April.

The advantages of NHSbuntu over proprietary PC operating systems include security, speed, costs and freedom. Using NHSbuntu will also enable NHS organisations to run up-to-date versions of browsers, creating an environment in which innovation can flourish, the developers say.

In a presentation at the conference, one of the four NHSbuntu developers, Rob Dyke, lauds the functionality and features that are included by default in NHSbuntu. One of the main benefits is full disk encryption, which can help safeguard privacy sensitive data.

Even Snowden and Glyn Moody and Simon Phipps and many others have their "say" about the NHS' failure to either patch their systems and the fact they are still using Windows ->
