 Linux cures ailing pharmacy network

"Family-owned Medicine Chest Pharmacy in Hayward, Calif., was running Windows NT -- until Microsoft pulled support for that operating system. Faced with a choice between a massive expenditure to upgrade to Windows 2000 and the sometimes challenging freedom of going with open source, pharmacist James Cohen decided to think outside the box. The Medicine Chest has been in operation since 1985. It's an independent drugstore that focuses on customer service and the personal touch. The old-fashioned soda fountain up front adds an element of nostalgia designed to create a family atmosphere."
