What is… Calculate Linux?¶
You can learn about Linux ®
Calculate Linux Desktop is a complementary solution for the Server and together they provide important features like roaming profiles and centralized software deployment.
Calculate Directory Server can successfully replace a Windows NT ® domain controller (Windows clients supported) and provides additional services that can be deployed in a matter of minutes: LDAP, Mail, Jabber and many others.

We created our own distribution to help other people who want to use GNU/Linux instead of a proprietary OS for their business needs.
