1.8 Software

As regards software, the philosophy behind Calculate Linux distributions is to

  1. pick our users' favourites;
  2. create a unified design that would match the window manager;
  3. provide one program for one task.

You can help us selecting better software by writing to calculate-user, our mailing list.
