Elive looks amazing, no question. But unfortunately, the look and feel is not all a modern OS requires.

The day this version of Elive was released it was already outdated! The kernel it uses is theoretically the oldest still supported kernel. However, Linux and crew don't maintain it very well anymore and it's lacking important security patches from the last 2 months.

So, as much as I would like to use Elive, it's not suitable for a production system - it's too outdated.
