Similar to the Swiss based Elexis, the German Thera-pi and a few others it 
pretty much shows that if a software does what users expect it pretty much can 
have monkeys pulling strings in a shoe box to make it work.

Elexis and Thera-pi are fine examples of a problems ahead of GNUmed. As soon 
as people start using it because it does what user's need a commercial entity 
is needed and sustainable because support requests increase exponentially.

Even in those early stages of GNumed I spend 3-5 hours per week answering 
support requests. I do this because many of those requests show areas in need 
of improvements or report bugs but increasingly there are requests where 
GNUmed itself is percetly fine but users are not knowledgable enough to set it 

It's like trying to fix an engine when your skill level is that of a car 
driver rather then a mechanic.

Looking at it from a different perspective. GNUmed still lacks some essential 
features from a default user's perspective. One is coding systems. But even 
more important is to polish what is already there. 

Let's finalize the lab stuff for 0.9. It will be a big step forward.
