Calculate Linux 22 is here more than seven months after Calculate Linux 21 and it introduces some exciting new changes, such as the switch to the very popular PipeWire solution as the default sound server instead of PulseAudio. On the other hand, ALSA (Advanced Linux Sound Architecture) is still available as an option and it received Bluetooth support.

Another important change in this new Calculate Linux release is under the hood, as the developers managed to offer users a way to update their installations even after long periods of time.

    The Gentoo-based Calculate Linux distribution — made in Russia — on Dec. 8 was updated to version 22; a major release that brings several new features and updated components. It is an impressively different Linux operating system.

    This is a distribution designed with home and SMB users in mind. Calculate is particularly appealing to small businesses that want a rock-solid system with the flexibility to meet a variety of needs. It is optimized for rapid deployment in corporate environments.

    Calculate is old-computer friendly. It lets users optimize systems to match their hardware to best fit their needs and can be an inviting computing option for consumers with Linux know-how.

    Calculate is not difficult to use. Though it is a bit different under the hood, especially in how its package management system works.

    Calculate Linux 22 offers a switch to PipeWire as the default sound server instead of PulseAudio. It also offers a former default option of ALSA (Advanced Linux Sound Architecture).

    This latest version installs the system once and lets you update when needed. You can even update from a new image system while still running the current one. This is a great option to ward off upgrade surprises.
