Calculating the Test Drive

Calculate Linux got a recent update to 14.16.2 and my attention. Calculate is a Gentoo-based distribution with flavors for servers, desktops, media centers, and minimal builds. It’s 100% compatible with Gentoo and includes an “Interactive System build” that allows one to build a customized system. The project releases new images two or three times a year but weekly snapshots are available for cutting-edge lovers. The desktop edition ships with choices KDE and Xfce, skips systemd in preference for OpenRC, and provides some pre-compiled packages for each flavor.
