Calculate Linux is 10 years old

Added by Ivan Bulychev almost 2 years ago

10 years ago, on June 6th, 2007 the Calculate Linux project website was opened. Our aim was to find like-minded people, get support and move to a qualitatively new level. The first image of Calculate Linux was distributed as an archive once a month. You needed to download also another archive with a setup program to install the system. Step by step the distribution has grown into something bigger and got recognised in the whole world. We would like to thank all of you who help to develop the project, install the system, support newbies, report bugs.

Released on Febuary 2, 2017

Meet the new Calculate Linux Desktop with Cinnamon flavour!

Calculate Linux Desktop Cinnamon (CLDC) features a collection of Gnome 3 applications combined with the [[screenshots|classic CL design]] and the OpenRC init system.

CLDC is the fourth [[cld|Calculate Linux Desktop]] home or corporate environment providing an excellent user experience. We rebranded Cinnamon so as to make it look like a [[user guide|typical Calculate Linux]] desktop, unless it was impossible due to specificities of the environment. When used with Calculate Directory Server, CLDM gets all server settings automatically, without any basic admin intervention whatsoever.

New design for Calculate 17

Calculate Utilities 3.5 beta released

Added by Elena FRISON over 2 years ago

language Russian

The first beta of Calculate Utilities 3.5 has been made available. The brand new sys-apps/calculate-utils package now features server configuration tools, even though only only basics are supported for the time being, such as database deployment, LDAP server configuration, creating accounts for Unix users, files and configuration backups, etc. We completely rewrote the server utilities. Server templates were moved to the Calculate overlay. Two more USE flags, backup and server, were added to the package, which stand respectively for creating backups and server configuration. Until they have been implemented, the new server features will not be available for Calculate Directory Server. Instead, a transitory solution called Timeless will be released regularly, to be later merged with CDS.
