Elive 2.0
A fast and lightweight live CD using the beautiful Enlightenment desktop.

Elive is based on Debian GNU/Linux but uses the Enlightenment desktop. Enlightenment is stable and lightweight, Elive runs in less than 128MB of RAM, but highly configurable. If you have ever wondered about Enlightenment and whether is was worth the trouble of installing and configuring it, the Elive live CD is an excellent way of trying it out and seeing just what a stunning desktop it can be with a little effort. This makes Elive suitable for older hardware but also a good choice for anyone who wants a fast, responsive system.

Elive is not just a pretty and fast desktop, it includes plenty of software; from a full office suite to multimedia tools capable of enjoying and creating music, videos and DVDs. With all this software and a good desktop that does not require lots of resources, you may be wondering what's the catch. The only real catch is that this distro in not for Linux first-timers. It is one of those packages where the more you put in , the more you get out. So if you are a Linux tinkerer, or just prepared to take a little time to get what you want, this could be an excellent choice for you.

Verdict:

If you like tweaking your distro to look good and work better, this could be the one for you.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.61

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.
