Interesting! Main infrastructure differences from GNUmed seem to be
their use of QT (and PyQT) instead of wxWindows/wxPython for the GUI,
and their use of SQLObject as the object-relational mapper/interfcae,
but Python and PostgreSQL are common with GNUmed. They also seem to
leverage various KDE applications for contact management and email
rather than trying to replicate those functions in their software. Most
intriguingly, the software uses a touch-screen interface, presumably so
that the dentist can interact with an LCD screen on an arm while
standing next to/over his/her patient.

Of course, the really major difference to GNUmed is that the dental
software is not itself released under an open source license - it just
uses open source components.
