thank you for your article on Linux Calculators. I like HP calculators and I'm pleasently surprised that Nonpareil is mentioned. There are perhaps too many HP calculator emulators too mention them all, but another project that IMHO really deserves attention is Free42 ( ), which is an emulation of the HP42s. I think it is noteworthy because:
- active development, GPLv2
- runs on a lot of platforms, including Linux, Zaurus, maemo (and my Palm...)
- skins
- starts quickly, low memory usage
The precompiled binaries (I use the GTK version) ran on my Debian without problems.
