This is the "hard hat" area of the blog ....for the health care IT folks, so feel free to skip this one if you are not in IT as it will not make any sense...but for those readers who are in IT, take a look. Roll out Linux, Windows, etc. on a pre-configured application. Also some nice support for a couple open source CRM applications. This would normally take a couple days or perhaps even a week to normally configure, but this could be a huge time saver. You will need VMWare, Parallels, or Microsoft Virtual Server software to get started....BD
