Elive 2.0 - Distro Review

Filed under

Elive: Where Debian mights Enlightenment. This is Elive's slogan. As I am sure you can guess, it is a Debian based distribution that uses the Enlightenment window manager.

I always like to jump in with both feet when it comes to playing with technology, so to get the best feel for what Elive is and how it works I downloaded the LiveCD and installed it as the primary operating system on my Sager Laptop.

First Impressions:

Booting the LiveCD for the first time gave me one of those "wow" moments. This was the first time I had ever used a distro that used the Enlightenment window manager. It is stunning, to say the least. (minus my function+mute, all of my hardware worked OOTB).
