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.

07/13 - RE: Thunderbird en Français [résolu] (Adrien Daugabel)

Il y a eu une version 38.0.1 mais je ne me souviens plus s'il y a eu une version 38.0 (tout court)

Chez moi, ça a toujours été en Français :)

Le principal est que ça fonctionne, mais bizarre ...

Dans les modules complémentaires, tu peux activer le "Français Language Pack"

07/06 - RE: cl-update cron job killing my laptop (Alexander Tratsevskiy)

Caches the results of calculation of dependency, not 'git pull'. If you have made changes to /etc/portage or packages have been installed, the cache is cleaned.

Thank you!
