Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

Elive is a linux distro that is supposed to run good on old hardware and have a nice interface. Only problem is that they don't give a download link anywhere (they want you to pay), so I got the link and I'm giving it out. Remember, this is GPL software, so it's not illegal to redistribute it (although they claim to have some special license restricting it - utter BS).

It seems to me that one could take a debian cd, and install the majority of what this includes onto a system for free. The only advantage, and only reason why this guy is charging money, is because he wants to be compensated for the time it took him to package the whole thing up as a somewhat configured debian setup, with a goal in mind. I can't blame him. Debian on its own is a pain to configure for older hardware, and setting up X from the ground up can be a scary thing for most new users of *nix.

In any case, I'm downloading it, to try it out and see if my assumptions are correct. :D

It's fine for a basic user (it looks pretty and it's locked down really tight), but I wouldn't use it for anything real (well, maybe for the memtest on the live cd). You can't configure anything, fairly buggy, and full of spelling errors.

The twinkling stars if you have the dark theme installed is pretty cool though.
