Statlinux - Free linux distribution for economic and statistical research. It is based on Debian and has KDE, UI, thats why it looks like windows.
No less than 2 Gb of RAM memory.
Processor with no less than 1,7 GHrz.
No less than 30 Gb of free harf disc spase.
StatLinux is distributed for free on terms of GNU GPLv3 licence. You can freely copy it.
A lot of pre-installed software for statistical research and economic or mathematical calculations.
The is no need to install StatLinux on PC. It can be easily used from USB stick.
In StatLinux there are no viruses or any trojans or other spamware that is well-known for Windows users.
StatLinux has integrated data encryption system. There is abillity to envrypt not only file system, but loading process too.
Forget about drivers! They are integrated in and automatically installing while loading StatLinux.
StatLinux can be updated for free till 2019.
Main free software included in StatLinux
a free environment for rapid engineering and scientific prototyping and data processing. It is similar to commercial systems such as MATLAB from Mathworks, and IDL from Research Systems, but is Open Source. FreeMat is available under the GPL license.
is a high-level interpreted language, primarily intended for numerical computations. It provides capabilities for the numerical solution of linear and nonlinear problems, and for performing other numerical experiments. It also provides extensive graphics capabilities for data visualization and manipulation. Octave is normally used through its interactive command line interface, but it can also be used to write non-interactive programs. The Octave language is quite similar to Matlab so that most programs are easily portable.
R project and R commander
a free software environment for statistical computing and graphics.
Maxima and wxMaxima
a system for the manipulation of symbolic and numerical expressions, including differentiation, integration, Taylor series, Laplace transforms, ordinary differential equations, systems of linear equations, polynomials, sets, lists, vectors, matrices and tensors. Maxima yields high precision numerical results by using exact fractions, arbitrary-precision integers and variable-precision floating-point numbers. Maxima can plot functions and data in two and three dimensions.
is widely used for mathematics, engineering sciences and automatic control engineering.
GRETL - GNU Regression, Econometrics and Time-series Library
Easy intuitive interface (now in French, Italian, Spanish, Polish, German, Basque, Catalan, Galician, Portuguese, Russian, Turkish, Czech, Traditional Chinese, Albanian, Bulgarian, Greek and Japanese as well as English).
A wide variety of estimators: least squares, maximum likelihood, GMM; single-equation and system methods.
Time series methods: ARIMA, GARCH, VARs and VECMs, unit-root and cointegration tests, Kalman filter, etc.
Limited dependent variables: logit, probit, tobit, heckit, interval regression, models for count and duration data, etc.
Output models as LaTeX files, in tabular or equation format.
Command loop structure for Monte Carlo simulations and iterative estimation procedures.
GUI controller for fine-tuning Gnuplot graphs.
An expanding range of contributed function packages.
Links to GNU R, GNU Octave and Ox for further data analysis.
a general purpose Computer Algebra system. It is useful for doing mathematics by computer and for research and development of mathematical algorithms. It defines a strongly typed, mathematically correct type hierarchy. It has a programming language and a built-in compiler.
is a document processor that encourages an approach to writing based on the structure of your documents (WYSIWYM) and not simply their appearance (WYSIWYG).LyX combines the power and flexibility of TeX/LaTeX with the ease of use of a graphical interface. This results in world-class support for creation of mathematical content (via a fully integrated equation editor) and structured documents like academic articles, theses, and books. In addition, staples of scientific authoring such as reference list and index creation come standard. But you can also use LyX to create a letter or a novel or a theatre play or film script. A broad array of ready, well-designed document layouts are built in.
a program for statistical analysis of sampled data. It is a Free replacement for the proprietary program SPSS, and appears very similar to it with a few exceptions.
How to write StatLinux on USB stick for Windows users
To write StatLinux on USB stick, you need follow a few steps:
Have a clean USB stick with no less than 4 gigabytes.
While turning on or restarting PC USB stick must be in USB port. After second or two seconds PC was turned on or restarted push F2 or F12. BIOS blue screen must apear. Choose menu "boot" and make it firts option named "boot from USB flash drive".
Push F10 or "save and exit". PC will restart.
Kubuntu welcome screen will appear. Push "Try Kubuntu"
StatLinux will load from USB stick and you can work!
StatLinux can also be installed like secondary OS besides Windows.
