Editor's Pick at FamousWhy.com!

Quelitu Global

Quelitu Global is an environmental project aiming to increase the recycling and reuse of old computers worldwide by developing a free computer operating system that can give them a second life.

Quelitu - A Free Lightweight Multilingual Operating System (OS)

Quelitu is a fast, lightweight, and user-friendly computer operating system (OS) based on Linux (Debian-Ubuntu-Lubuntu branch with Lxde/Lxqt interfaces). Most Quelitu files are compatible with Windows formats (.doc, .docx, .xls, .xml, .pps, .ppd, .html, .pdf, .jpg, .png, .mpg, .wmv, .avi, .rmvb, .vob, .mkv, .wma, .mp3, .mp4, .pls, .zip, .7z, .rar, .torrent...).

Quelitu also supports iPod, iTunes, iPad, and iPhone with Banshee (music purchase, automatic synchronization, etc.), etc.

With Quelitu, you can edit your Word, Excel, etc. files directly on a Linux partition and work with them later in Windows if you want. Note that the default formatting of CDs and USB drives is compatible with both Windows and Linux.

Hundreds of additional applications can easily be downloaded from the free repositories, including educational and fun games for children 2-14 (e.g. qimo-games) and commercial types of games (see below). Software Details & Guide.

Quelitu can be installed alongside Windows so you can choose one or the other at boot time.

Because of Quelitu's smart design and low RAM usage, an old and slow PC that barely works can be turned into a perfectly functional computer or a kids fun/educational PC.

Quelitu is a fast, scalable, and full-fledged OS great for new computers and especially well suited for low-specification machines such as laptops, nettops, and netbooks, and for refurbishing older computers. It is a great alternative to Windows XP, Windows Vista, 7, and 8.


Many computers are now available without Windows pre-installed (barebone, no OS, FreeDOS, etc.) at a discount of $75 to $100 over the same model with Windows.

Longevity: Quelitu keeps very close to its parents Ubuntu/Lubuntu. If it ever stops being developed, users will be able to continue on with regular updates (Ubuntu/Lubuntu) and have the latest system available at all times.

The name Quelitu (pronounced K-lee-too) comes from the prefix Que and the following words: Linux/Light, and Ubuntu/Lubuntu.
