Elive Topaz 2.0 is based on Debian Linux. Though we have tested only the Live bootable USB version only (you no need to install to your hard disk in order to run), which according to the developer has limited features; we must admit it is one of the beautiful Operating System in the World today.
Here are three screenshots of Elive Topaz from Elive’s forum users:
Practically, without really testing it, it is not possible to share the experience. Elive uses the Enlightenment X window manager instead of GNOME or KDE. It has Compiz too!
So, its your wish whether your desktop will need snow fall, fire sparkle with clicks. It runs on Mac too.
Yes it is free and here are more free Themes and Applications.
Today, we will show you with screenshots to show due respect for the excellent work to the person behind Elive Topaz development as well as to the whole team.
