Notes from the Developer:

64 BIT available! This has been a very long awaited and desired feature for Elive since for a long time. Its implementation has been severely hampered due to lacking donations. Continuing anyway, we have decided to provide these current, already very well tested 64BIT builds, through donations. Alternative options for those who cannot donate are included too! Finally, when the next stable version is finished, these 64bit builds will be publicly available at no cost :)
E16 Desktop Due to too the enormous workload required for the full desktop integration, we chose to use an extremely well customized E16 desktop. including most of the already well known Elive features to make your work comfortable and extremely stable. You will be immersed in an exquisitely unique world and experience while using it, making daily work on this desktop a pleasure. Please share your experiences in our forums! :)
