Calculate Linux

What is… Calculate Linux?

slide show

You can learn about Linux ® here.
The Calculate project features several distributions, optimized for two distinct groups of people: home users as well as small and medium businesses that prefer open-source to proprietary solutions.

Calculate Linux Desktop is a complementary solution for the Server and together they provide important features like roaming profiles and centralized software deployment.

Calculate Directory Server can successfully replace a Windows NT ® domain controller (Windows clients supported) and provides additional services that can be deployed in a matter of minutes: LDAP, Mail, Jabber and many others.

Calculate Linux is based on Gentoo that is well known for its stability and great performance on a broad range of hardware: from Pentium Pro to modern CPUs.

Why make another distribution?

Most of the modern Linux distributions are intended for enthusiasts, except Novell SLES/SLED, Ubuntu and RedHat EL. However, even if you use these, setting up a client/server environment could be tricky (especially when you have to manage both Windows and Linux clients). We created our own distribution to help other people who want to use GNU/Linux instead of a proprietary OS for their business needs.

Thank you!
