Is Steve Jobs getting sleepless nights? He should after the release of Elive Gem. Mac users get a run for their money. Vista is no competition... What I liked the most about the distro is that all the packages run out-of-box. Even the mp3s, mpegs and 3gps run on livecd and it is so light on the system! The only disappointment being that the openoffice is not available unless you get the 'bonus disk'
Great work, all you devs... congrats!
Congratulations on the making of such a great distro, and thank you for your hard work. I hope you can continue with it.
I love Elive too. Best features for me are:
- Based on Debian Stable & E
- desktop (exactly what I want)
- all multimedia works out of the box
- bundled applications are very thoughtful. For example, most people who own computers these days also own a digital stills and video camera, yet most distros don't come with the tools needed for editing home m
Just wanted to say that I love ELIVE! I just got it installed and have been toying with it for an hour or so, and I have 0 complaints so far. My only issue is getting wireless working, and thats only because Broadcomm sucks for not making a linux driver like every other wireless chipset maker. Anyway, I will try to post here as much as possible with issues, fixes, and ideas as they crop up. With the community's help this could be the greatest OS Distro EVER!
THANKS ELIVE TEAM!
Elive is definitely the best looking distributions available. It uses the Enlightenment desktop environment. I have never used Enlightenment before. The ELIVE default desktop is absolutely gorgeous! The stars in the sky twinkle and move throughout the very nice looking background. The application dock at the bottom of the screen is cute, in fact better than Mac OSX. I am soon gonna switch over to Elive. I love it.
Keep up the good work Thanatermesis. You have done a fantastic job by producin
I have been impressed with Elive and e17 for quite a while...
Yesterday I did two things:
1. I re-installed Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005
2. I installed a dual boot to Elive Gem 1.0
Both installs went without event, I was most impressed with how Elive set up a custom grub menu, with the 3 options:
1. Elive Gem 1.0
2. Windows XP Media Center Edition
3. Memory Diagnostic test
I was also impress
