Two weeks ago Microsoft announced that it is open sourcing Windows Calculator app on GitHub under the MIT License.
The act has drawn a surprising amount of interest, with the project already having nearly 2000 forks.
Now the developers have started working on adding one serious feature, with tens more proposals in the wings.
The team is working on adding graphing features to the app with the goals to:
- Provide a great baseline graphing calculator experience in Windows Calculator
- Support all US common core math curriculum, including:
- Ability to build and interpret functions
- Understand linear, quadratic, and exponential models
- Trigonometric functions
- Reason with equations and inequalities
There 30 more proposals being considered, including my favourite – the ability to pin the calculator above other windows.
