CAELinux a pleasant breeze in the CAD/CAE field, where engineers are forced to burn their money for expensive licenses. This Linux distro is a collection of reliable tools that need knowledge and skills, not money, to get your tasks done. - IMPORTANT: As soon as you install CAE_Linux at your machine's harddisk/usb whatever, DON'T forget to install the Hardware Enablement Stack for Ubuntu 12.04 by issuing following command: ' sudo apt-get install --install-recommends linux-generic-lts-saucy xserver-xorg-lts-saucy libgl1-mesa-glx-lts-saucy ' - This command will install the latest hardware drivers and latest kernel automatically.

Excellent, it even works on the Amazon EC2 cloud ! I would love if it had more updates. Thanks for this great compilation of computational fluid dynamics and finite element open source packages.
