LXer: Rick Marshall's VistA Blog

Published at LXer:

Rick Marshall has begun aVistA blog with some good prose:'...In the beginning it had no name. Amazingly, those who fought their David-and-Goliath battle to bring VISTA to the world merely described it rather than naming it, almost unthinkable in this era of branding urges so powerful we had to coin the term"vaporware" for our empty software names. Instead, the fathers of VISTA offered us abundant anonymity, a wealth of medical informatics with no name...'

The VISTA Rick Marshall is interested in is (of course) the Veterans Health Information Systems and Technology Architecture.

Can't help but wonder if LXer's news gathering agents got fooled on this one. There is no allusion to Microsoft, Linux, or OpenSource.

The blurb is right, though. That opening paragraph is some real nice prose.
