" Element OS is a 32 bit Xubuntu based distro for HTPCs(Home Theatre PCs). It maintains compatibility with Ubuntu repositories. It uses the Advanced Packaging Tool(APT) with Element's own custom repositories and the Ubuntu repositories. Element OS also incorporates the AllMyApps software center to allow additional applications to be downloaded.

"Technology And Functionality

"* Element employs a customized Xfce interface with similar full-screen windowing effects seen on netbook and mobile interfaces such as the Ubuntu Netbook Remix.
* Element OS deploys '10 foot user interface' technology which makes it even unique among HTPCs.
* Element OS comes with XBMC Media Center by default. And you can always install other media center applications like Boxee, Moovida or Hulu."
