Calcalute Linux Desktop 12 KDE - Keep It Rolling, Baby

Reviews

Well, I wasn't going to do any reviews until later this year, but several of a recent flurry of releases caught my attention and my interest and I made some time for checking them out. One of them is Calculate Linux. Others have reviewed it before and found themselves inundated with offers of Russian brides and other advertisements of the more vile kind, but I won't let that put me off because, as I can reveal, I like the product itself very much.

So, with comment permissions tightened and my email address replaced I embark on this mission. If you really want to get hold of me you can do so on Google+ or Twitter.

In case you haven't guessed yet the project is headquartered in Russia, and from looking at their forum and social traffic seems to have a lot of users in the former Eastern Bloc.
