The Elive distro's integration of the Debian Linux base and the Enlightenment desktop is a powerful combination. Together, they offer a unique computing platform that is powerful and flexible. Elive is not like most Linux distributions. It does not have a team of workers supporting multiple desktop offerings cranking out frequent upgrades each year. It also does not have a thriving community. In fact, Elive is one of a few Linux distros that aggressively asks for donations in order to download the installation ISO file.

I object to supposedly Ďfreeí software being aggressively promoted for donations like Elementary and Elive. Yes life is hard for many people these days and we live in a monetized society but if you canít afford to give something away then drop it. The Linux world in any case is awash with beta status distros all being billed as the next best thing that only serve to drag down the appeal of the operating system in general. By example the king of the ego driven garbage being fed to users is Ultimate. Itís little wonder the Linux desktop user base never expands above 2% when so many potential Windows migrants become disillusioned with what they encounter and never get to experience something that actually works properly and lives up to expectations.
