Subject description: an example of what is NOT a "Bug" and should NOT be reported here
 

The previous basic calculator program seems to be missing, only the relatively ugly scientific calculator remains.

Okay, now this is funny. After YEARS of people complaining that there are too many calculators...

now there are not enough???

Laughing


But seriously, there is a fairly basic one. It's the "Galculator" option. And I wouldn't call the scientific one ugly. It's extremely plain, but at least it's clean.

And now we're back to too many again. That was fast. Laughing

I'd take the other option personally - drop the basic one. Even Windows supports basic things like logarithms. Scientific calculators are not just for scientists. Nowadays the average school children need at least a scientific calculator for their (required) math and science classes.


EDIT: Actually, Galculator has a scientific mode, if you go to the "view" menu, so we can have the best of both worlds I guess.

Galculator...that was the one! Thanks for the feedback into the real world requirements....its been a long time since I was a student.

May we have Galculator as the (single) default.

I want the best for this world Laughing

No. And stop using the royal "we"! While you're at it, stop using this forum to promote your own causes!

I have been progressively deleting your false bug reports in this thread. I will continue to do so, but have chosen to leave this one and a couple of others to demonstrate the folly of considering things you don't like, or don't agree with as "Bugs". They are not "Bugs", by any reasonable definition, and I don't particularly care why you choose to identify them as such. This forum is not your personal megaphone!
