Free & open software of a great graphic (2D/3D) calculator.

It's in French, but follow "Site officiel" and download...

Many other interesting softwares on Framasoft site, especially for those interested in Astronomy, like me, some marvellous Planetarium.

thanks for the link. i'm picking up some nifty little tools that i wouldn't have otherwise found since my main machine is a mac. but now that i can boot into vista or run linux and windows via virtualization, i can take advantage of these windows programs i was never able to use previously.

Sure, windoze has a few "nice" apps to play with, but here is what we get to play with..

First, does everyone (mac users) know about "Grapher", which is in the Applications/Utilities/ directory, in OSX 10.4.x? Full featured 2d/3d graphing application for some reason buried in utils..

My short list of fun (freeware/opensource):









PDP-8/E simulator::


I could go on.....

Cheers, Pal

believe it or not, i do have the pdp8e simulator. my first computer job out of the navy involved eight of those installed at a small newspaper. 12-bit and programmed via toggle switch and lights, just like the altair 8800.

oh, and there's an enigma simulator for the mac also. just found it last week when it popped up on versiontracker.
