First Look at Poseidon Linux, the Linux For Scientists (Linux.com)

Carla Schroder takes a look at Poseidon Linux, a distribution for the international scientific community. "Why a specialized science distro? Poseidon is more than just another Ubuntu respin because it includes a lot of specialized software that is not available in the Ubuntu or Debian respositories, and putting it all together in a nice distro is a real convenience. These extra packages are managed the usual way with Synaptic, Ubuntu Software Center, or apt-get, drawing from various repositories such as linux.dropbox.com/ubuntu, packages.medibuntu.org and ppa.launchpad.net."
