It all originated from the need to host GNUmed Live CDs, VMware images and so on. Nothing comes for free and there was no way we could host these images on the GNUmed servers. That is why we started the GNUmed Live project on sourceforge.
This gives us the room we need to offer GNUmed in a form that allows users to try GNUmed without going through the whole installation process.
Head over to sourceforge.net to see for yourself and grab a CD image.
This is not intended to be the beginning of a Linux distribution for the medical field. This effort will need to be undertaken by projects such as Debian-med, openSUSE medical and the Fedora medical special interest group.
