FOR ME: Uptodate is an expensive but reliable source of information for any physician, it works via web, as a standalone-version (WINE!), web-based and mobile (smartphone/PDA)
Taken from their website (uptodate.com):
UpToDate is an evidence-based, peer-reviewed information resource available via the Web and mobile devices.With UpToDate, you can answer questions quickly, increase your clinical knowledge and improve patient care. Independent studies confirm these benefits.The UpToDate community includes our faculty of over 4,400 leading physicians, peer reviewers and editors and over 400,000 users. Our faculty writes topic reviews that include a synthesis of the literature, the latest evidence, and specific recommendations for patient care. Our users provide feedback to the editorial group. This community's combined efforts result in the most trusted, unbiased medical information available.
Installing via PlayonLinux works "out-of-the-box" without installing Quicktime-Videos. Activation via eMail works as well. Normal functionality as in Windows.
What does not
