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.
Calculate Linux is based on Gentoo that is well known for its stability and great performance on a broad range of hardware: from Pentium Pro to modern CPUs.

Why make another distribution?¶
Most of the modern Linux distributions are intended for enthusiasts, except Novell SLES/SLED, Ubuntu and RedHat EL. However, even if you use these, setting up a client/server environment could be tricky (especially when you have to manage both Windows and Linux clients). We created our own distribution to help other people who want to use GNU/Linux instead of a proprietary OS for their business needs.

Currently server is configured using only command-line utilities. Configure the server using the GUI of Calculate Console planned for future versions.
07/25 - What graphical samba interface is recommended? (Andrés Cianciaruso)
Do you recommend any graphical administrative tool or interface to configure the Server properties (Active directory, samba basis, etc.)?
The problem was due to low battery of an optical mouse.

You can abort the upgrade (Ctrl+C) and turn off the laptop. In most cases, this will not lead to problems.
I installed Calculate 13.19 and performed the update.
