The main computer for Elive development is an old Core2duo, if you have some more recent hardware that you don't use and you want to donate it to Elive it will be very appreciated :)

This page is under construction, will be improved for the release.

Elive includes much more software and an optimal selection of it so the best is to just try directly the last Beta version even in Live mode

OFFICE

LibreOffice is the most commonly used office suite which is free and open. It allows you to create documents that are compatible with other office software by using correctly compatible extensions. You can even export to PDF. It offers many high-end features. You don’t have to worry about your office needs when using Elive.

SKYPE

Do you enjoy video chat? You have many options with Elive. Most people use Skype, which is included, but is not free. We suggest you use Google Hangouts, also pre-installed and working by default.

GIMP, INKSCAPE, BLENDER

Gimp is the most common and used alternative to Photoshop, it supports many features and who is used to it doesn’t needs photoshop. Inkscape is a vectorial design application. Blender is an extremely powerful 3D creation suite that supports modeling, rigging, animation, simulation, rendering, compositing and motion tracking, even video editing and game creation.

AVIDEMUX & CINELERRA

Avidemux is a complete application to convert any video to any format, it supports also effects and a good number of features. Cinelerra is a very powerful and professional video editor (NLE), with it you can do very professional works.

VIRTUAL BOX

Do you ever wanted to use Windows at the same that you use Linux? or to have different operating systems installed in your computer and running in the same time? What about making snapshots of the states of these machines to try to install rare software and then go back to the previous state? VirtualBox is an emulator of computer, if your real computer has virtualization features in the CPU these machines can run even faster than if was really installed on your computer.
