Elive is a Linux distribution based on Debian, which sports a large number of applications, ranging from multimedia, office and Internet-related applications, to games and science. With Elive, you can watch movies, listen to your favorite songs, surf the Internet or chat with friends.

I would say that almost everything about this version of Elive is great. It definitely beats its competitor OpenGEU.
