1+1 = Calculate Linux

Filed under
Linux

Another Monday, another review. This week it’s Calculate Linux 11.3 Gnome Edition! Get ready for another wild and crazy ride into the ever changing landscape known as FLOSS!

Arriving at home page for the Calculate Linux website you get the feel that it’s a straight forward business-like site. There’s nothing flashy about the website, but it’s also extremely informative. There’s release announcements, new package updates, ‘Planet Calculate’ blog/news feed, security advisories and a twitter feed down the one side. The other side has a brief introduction about Calculate Linux, Why another distribution was built when there are so many, different ways of obtaining help, and lastly, a section showing the recent forum posts. The menus are thoroughly populated with every option you could possibly need. One that sticks out was being able to connect directly to IRC from the ‘Community” drop-down menu. There’s no need for a client, it just opens a window where you are a guest in the channel. I was ‘guest-en’ quite a number of times.

Open source laptops – ones not running any commercial software whatsoever – have been the holy grail for free software fans for years. Now, with the introduction of libreboot, a truly open source boot firmware, the dream is close to fruition. The $730 laptop is a bog standard piece of hardware but it contains only open source software. The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
