Under the hood lies Debian Lenny (5.0.3) with a Linux 188.8.131.52 kernel. ... Elive is pretty much a one-man show
So, already out of date and lacking any security support.
One of the consequences is that users can download the distribution for free, but they have to pay (Elive calls it a "donation") to install it to a hard drive.
I'm looking forward to seeing Debian receive its share of this 'donation'. After all, Debian and upstream developers have done 99.9% of the work involved in this distribution.
I wish people would work to improve existing distributions instead of spending the huge amount of time and effort needed to create a derivative which they can never support as well. It is a real waste.
