Examples of old Articles we Loved!


To fund the development of Elive we require donations, which are our sole financial source. As we don’t want to cold shoulder those in a restrictive financial situation, we provide this alternative option to download entirely cost-free.

Providing a direct download by offering a similar (in effort) way can be seen as a small donation too. A way for us to uphold the existing donation system and on top, giving Elive more public attention which is an important factor too.

How it works?

Write an article about Elive on any website you choose, in preference referencing the Stable version, mentioning the features you liked the most. It can be in any language but the preference is English. Then, submit the link to your article and we will email you shortly!

Which topics?

You can write about anything on Elive you like, love, or found unique, for example how Elive is able to support the B43 wifi driver better than any other distro, you can found some ideas on the Features pages


  • Must be a real article in a website or blog (no comments, no Facebook posts)
  • Must be a positive feedback about Elive
  • Must include some links to the Elive website and at least 1 screenshot
  • Must be written from you or it will be rejected
  • Youtube: must be a recent video and we verify the authenticity on the author's profile
  • Warning: If your article gets rejected, you need to wait 24 hours to submit a new one, you must send a real one!
