Review of Calculate Linux 12: KDE with a twist!

Filed under
Linux

I wanted to try out some Linux distros which are not Fedora or Ubuntu based. So, in came Calculate Linux 12 Desktop version and I liked what they have done with KDE here. The KDE ISO is big (2.3 GB) and I downloaded it from the calculate linux site. Just a day before Calculate Linux, I tried out Scientific Linux - given similarity in names and a large ISO size, my expectations were really high!

The boot up was quick and unlike Scientific, Calculate didn't require installation. The KDE interface is pleasant and I really liked the Gnome flavor the developers have rendered here.

Rest here
