When I compare the links being discussed here I see 2 different links they are...
http://www.elivecd.org/Download/Stable
http://www.elivecd.org/Download/download
They are different and I can not find any path to the Download/download page from the Elive home page.

Those links both allow me to download without donation.

The Stable requires a donation. I'm in the US.

My wife just pointed out to me that a donation to download is not a donation it is a charge since you can't download it without a donation. From what I have seen here most people are finding that Elive is requiring a charge for their distro.

I don't know...
For instance, the first days following the new Symphony OS release, you had to make a small donation to download it. It later became available as a free download, but in this case, this was stated clearly on their website.
It may be that the guys at eLive did the same thing but in a more obscure way...


That could be the case then. I keep forgetting that its ok to charge money for distributing free software

:shock: Well, it looks like they deleted it indeed. No messages, nothing.
Well...
This is over with eLive for me.
I want nothing to do with such a bad behaving community. And i certainly don't want to use their stuff.
I am more than glad that i didn't have to donate to get their thing.

Seems like I got my answer as well, they aren't completely open about things, so I don't want anything to do with them. And I dislike how they modded your post, read it through, did not see a single reason for modding it, only if they have something to hide :D
