Very Nice Idea
The idea of Free&Alter is very good. We have an Octane
runing IRIX, and people at the lab keep trying to tweak the
system into a cumbersome GNU/Linux system. We really
lack being able to do a complete, fast, and easy free
software installation. Another promissing feature is the
focus on scientific applications, the ones that everyone
having a workstation works with.
Let's see if this is the long-awaited solution...
An open, cross-platform journaling program.
A scientific plotting package.
