Know-How

  • Creating Scientific Formulas: Scientific documents are where open source tools show their greatest strengths. To save yourself a lot of trouble, however, you need to know how to combine formulas and data into your work. Linux provides the appropriate tools.

  • Do-It-Yourself Debian Packages: The powerful tools with which you can build Debian packages (also used in Ubuntu) are available to any user. You can even save time by compiling them by hand.
