Raised by 49 people in 20 months
Imagine a world where people everywhere can turn their computers into a new experience and cost-free for everyone, in the world.

Imagine a world where intuitive and elegant interfaces gives more openess to new technologies to everybody.

Imagine a world where there's an opportunity to revive old computers inviting people with low resources to have access to information.

Imagine a world where computers becomes 10x times faster.

Imagine a world where these computers already ship with the best tools to unleash your creativity.


Now... Imagine everything togheter....


STOP TO IMAGINE!
THIS IS REAL!


For more than 13 years, Elive has demonstrated to be a perfect replacement for the unreliable and slow operating system that comes with your computer.

The reviews on internet proves it... and there's only one single complain everywhere:

The payment needed to install it...
So let's change that!


WHY

It's time to remove this limitation and let the most needed ones to use it without restrictions.

While computing industries push us to buy the last models, there are thousands of people around the world struggling with their computers.


CONSECUENCES


The world needs creative people, creativity is everywhere, but if they don't have tools, a big number of the population will not even have the possibilities to express themselves.

Think about what the world can be if we can:

   * Provide the world with good tools
   * Make computers work 10 times faster
   * Give possibilities to people that has not
   * Decrease the technological waste in the planet

Just think about the increased possibilities that underdeveloped countries can have. This can give them advanced technology and being comunicated with the external world, accessing to information and so improving education giving them the opportunity to work online to improve their economical situation!


YOUR BENEFITS:

   * The world is gonna be a better place
   * Improved designs in your Elive
   * Elive cost-free, for you, your friends, and everybody
   * Better tools, features, integrity, performance, 
   * Bigger community, howto's, hacks, customizations, etc...

Note: you can follow the updates of these designs on our FB page



These funds are going to be used for:

- 2 programmers
- 1 graphic designer
- 1 marketing specialist
- 1 content manager (website)

For 3 months.

UPDATE
: These details corresponds to the original amount which was 40k and which I have strongly decreased in order to reach the goal.


Everything raised up of the amount set will be used to have more resources, achieving better results.


We need YOU to change the world, even if your collaboration is small, and if seriously you cannot donate, share it as much as you can everywhere, be part of the future.


To build an big mountain, every grain is essential.




Be part of the mountain... Be the mountain.

Updates on the designs (visual effects) can be seen in the last entry/video in the facebook page of Elive: https://www.facebook.com/elive/

They are not only going to be much nicer to work on, but making your computer much more responsive too (which means fast!), and also more useful (window transparency's value, virtual-desktop organization, etc...

Desktop is more responsive with these effects enabled (ecomorph) than the default composite mode of E17 (and even more if is set to software-mode)

Enjoy! going to build a new beta soon!
