Re: Pantheon Calculator


I think the weirdest thing about Pantheon-Calculator now is that there's not really a good reason for it to be all custom cairo (which, IIRC, it is). We could have it be just as sexy in GTK3.

Whenever I need complex calculations, I use advanced mathematical software. I agree, Pantheon Calculator is a good piece of software and fits perfectly with elementary OS' philosophy; it should be the default calculation software on eOS.

Hello there,

Mario just proposed to merge a branch to lp:pantheon-calculator that fixes the close button bug and we are now wondering why Pantheon Calculator isn't the default calculator on elementary OS.

Yes, Gnome Calculator has more features, but most users (in our target audience) only need to make simple additions, subtractions and whatnot. Plus, Gnome Calculator isn't nearly as sexy as Pantheon Calculator.

With this fix, we believe we can ship Pantheon Calculator. If more fixes are necessary, I'm sure they can be made. What's your opinion on this matter?
