I saw Elive beta in the distrowatch feed this morning. Some people in this
group have said some very nice things about ELive, but apart from
uniqueness, I wonder what it has to offer which more popular distributions
cannot boast. I suppose that to many consistency is important. I loved
Enlightenment back when I was using it. However, remember that KDE is
highly extensible. It can be adjusted to look and behave like merely
anything, even OS X and Vista. Setting it up in this way is greatly
simplified too. GNOME has similar capabilities, but I am not sure about
desktop environments behaviour. In terms of looks, it remains pretty
flexible. I run KDE and GNOME on this computer simultaneously... best of
