I’m the founder and main developer of Elive, the first version appeared around 2002 in a very geeky fashion, but the first public version of Elive didn’t appeared until 2005. I still actively developing Elive and I would like to make it greater everyday, I have a thousand of ideas that I would like to include on it but my human condition doesn’t allow me to reach all of them, I can define myself like a visionary or dreamer, where limits on my imagination doesn’t exist but the possibilities in the real world can even frustrate me when realizing them.
My life’s purpose is to make this a better world, actually I’m doing it by providing with Elive a reliable alternative to other operating systems, which is much faster, light and more intuitive.
My job in Elive is undefined, where I’m charged of everything like developing, customizing or automating, I also spend a good amount of time brainstorming an optimal user-experience by bringing new ideas and ways of use computers.
Please use the Forums instead of contacting me via email, unless is very specific or needed
Deon is a very good programmer which helped a lot in Elive in misc sides, he was able to improve the Enlightenment desktop for the specific Elive purposes and was also able to make the website of Elive to work internally in functions and plugins that was required, his collaboration in misc things is too big to list all of them.
He still collaborating from time to time in the Elive development but he’s busy in a better payed work that I cannot afford, so please send him a big thanks to motivate him to not forget this nice project! 🙂
