Neptun Wave Fall 2018

3 September - 1 October

At Projekt Neptun we use an open source package manager called Ninite. This service lets you automatically install popular open source applications with just one click. The installer will automatically install the latest versions of all applications listed below. Your computer must be online to use the Ninite Installer. We recommend to run the installer periodically (for example, once a month) to keep your software up to date. Ninite installers are unfortunately not available for Mac, but there is a great alternative available: Getmacapps.

LaTeX

There is no LaTeX distribution included in the installers above. We recommend to use either TeX Live or MiKTeX. The advantage of TeX Live is that it is available on all major platforms (standard on most Linux distributions, Mac OS X and Windows).  

Antivirus

We urgently recommend to install an antivirus software on your Windows or Mac laptop! Our Neptun Software Service offers the commercial version of Sophos Endpoint Antivirus for all Neptun customers. 

Backup

It is recommended to frequently back up your system or at least your user data! We offer the commercial version of the Langmeier Backup software for all Neptun customers, it can be downloaded via the Neptun Software Service. For back up on a Mac use TimeMachine from Apple.
