jtetetng - so your point is that we were correct, except very recently the trends have changed, and therefore we are completely wrong?
Actually - I also disagree with you. It is too soon to proclaim a long term trend. And, City of Heroes just came out with an expansion that includes very high end 3D imaging that is very gpu demanding. Even slightly older cards cannot take full advantage of the new rendering.
Regarding hospital software - this has nothing to do with "flash" - I am talking about core functionality. I have used many medical systems for various purposes - EMR, ordering, data lookup, research, and running equipment. I have also implemented an EMR in my department, and spent a year with the programmers designing our interface. They are generally clunky, and years behind commercial software for broader use. It is way harder to do stuff then it has to be. It is catching up recently, but slowly and is still way behind.
