I waited a long time for this. a Linux project to get renewed older hardware with a good desktop experience. Thanks to this i use an old laptop with great satisfaction for general purposes.
Thanks to Elive, nice job :)
Excelente sistema operativo.
de todas las distribuciones que he probado me quedo con ELIVE!
Una distribucion bastante artistica.
I want to thank you for all you do. I hope that all the work you do is also fun. I can tell you that this OS even though it isn't perfect, it is pretty awesome. I have been using Elive for a couple of years and have enjoyed seeing it mature.
I have been using the latest version of the unstable branch. I use it all the time and have had no problems at all. All my hardware, including my SMC USB WIFI is working fine.
I have installed some applications that I use for my businesses. They installed fine, they run fine (LedgerSMB), Opera 9.50, Bluefish. The system is responsive and fast, just what I wanted.
Debian itself is new to me. Your Elive caught my eye, though, and I tried it. Cool. Everything works nicely, and all the most important things are there.
But, the story, and the kudos, don't stop there.
My family is basically Microsoft oriented. The wife and kids have always been hesitant about experimenting with Linux, of any flavor.
My youngest son (age 15) simply fell in love with the Enlightenment desktop, and the window management system.
