about

Have some chillout music (?). "Libere Vive" is Latin for "Live Freely".

Why a computer? Short answer: "Live" and "Linux" share the same first two letters. For the sake of the impatient and the uninterested, the long answer is down below.

I'd appreciate some monetary support, but if you want this song for free, download it here: anon126.tk/cyanomixer/?r=libvive

Long answer: In response to the ads for Windows 10 that were coming out, someone made an awesome ad for Linux parodying them...

...On a Mac.

Linux ad (Reddit post): www.reddit.com/r/linuxmasterrace/comments/3fa935/after_seeing_the_recent_windows_10_ads_i_figured/
Windows 10 ad (there were quite a few in the same style): www.youtube.com/watch?v=pv6hvWrwwK8

Of course, that's a bit ironic, so I wondered if I could make an ad for Linux, on Linux, using free and open-source software. This is part of that effort.

The general refrain I had in mind was "Live Freely" based on the "Li" in "Linux", similar to how the Windows 10 ads had the "Do" refrain based on the "do" in "Windows". Hence the title of this song.

But since my animation skills are virtually nonexistent, I knew my visuals couldn't compare. So, I am releasing this song into the public domain (CC0: creativecommons.org/publicdomain/zero/1.0/ ; ignore the CC-BY license) so that someone else can pick it up. I would like to see someone use free and open-source software to make it, but that's just a preference.

I made this song with LMMS and sounds from Hydrogen, both of which are free and open-source.
