Pebbles: OS calculator for scientists and statisticians for Gnome Linux desktops

For so long, we didn't have a fancy calculator on Linux desktops, but now we have Pebbles.

Pebbles is a lightweight multi-mode calculator intended for students, scientists and statisticians. Even more,  it is completely free (Libre) open-source project with active development team of 5.
