Notes from the Developer:

64-bit Downloads: We are brainstorming and restructuring the versions to make them more accessible. For example, by only providing the direct download of the 32-bit builds and not the 64-bit ones, we had limited some users if they had computers with Secure Boot enabled, full RAM utilization, or having EFI system issues. Our goal is to provide easy ways for people to get and use Elive freely while still sustaining the project through donations.

Haha yes it still alive since 2005 :slight_smile: when it was the first time you tried it?

The version 3.0 is the one that offers the best experience if you want to try it (only in old hardware since its a very old build with old drivers), new beta's includes a different desktop but the next step is to work in the new desktop to have a similar experience as 3.0
