medical_compUpdate: Medial Linux s probably gone. Try Debian Med.

We listed down a number of Linux applications suitable for the medical industry in one of our earlier articles. We came across Medical Linux – a distro that comes not only with an array of top-notch software for the medical industry but also other accessory software to run day to day business or for pure entertainment.
