I think that the Debian should be the default and the most public. It can be 
made to work so easily for the computer-user who doesn't know much with a 
knoppix style Cd and installer. 
Other systems don't have to be supported in such an easy manner to use - while 
it would be great to cover rpm and exe I think that users should be 
encouraged to have a separate computer for medical work. Financial software 
that can do the billing in a complementary way would make it complete.
Most of our work computers run a medical program, billing and appointments, 
browser (no email; no chat; no games). A few have word processing software, 
accounting software and two have spirometry software.
