## Welcome to AIMS Desktop
![AIMS Desktop Picture](/images/screen.png)
AIMS Desktop is a collection of software that allows you to do mathematics and science on your computer easily and efficiently. You need no exising software on your computer, AIMS Desktop installs an entire operating system that you can install standalone, or dual boot with Microsoft Windows or Apple macOS.
It is maintained by AIMS (The African Institute for Mathematical Sciences), a pan-African network of centres of excellence enabling Africa’s talented students to become innovators driving the continent’s scientific, educational and economic self-sufficiency.
AIMS Desktop is free for anyone to use for educational, non-profit or commercial purposes. (See: Software Licences for more information)

We're planning to launch this site along with the AIMS Desktop 2017.1 release in June of 2017. In the meantime, you will likely find some missing content on this site.

&lt;p&gt;&lt;img src=&#34;https://desktop.aims.ac.za/images/screen.png&#34; alt=&#34;AIMS Desktop Picture&#34; /&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;AIMS Desktop is a collection of software that allows you to do mathematics and science on your computer easily and efficiently. You need no exising software on your computer, AIMS Desktop installs an entire operating system that you can install standalone, or dual boot with Microsoft Windows or Apple macOS.&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;It is maintained by AIMS (The African Institute for Mathematical Sciences), a pan-African network of centres of excellence enabling Africa’s talented students to become innovators driving the continent’s scientific, educational and economic self-sufficiency.&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;AIMS Desktop is free for anyone to use for educational, non-profit or commercial purposes. (See: Software Licences for more information)&lt;/p&gt;
