DistroWatch.com: Bodhi Linux

Bodhi Linux

Last Update: 2017-09-19 05:06 UTC


Bodhi Linux is an elegant and lightweight Ubuntu-based distribution featuring Moksha, an Enlightenment-17-based desktop environment. The project takes a decidedly minimalist approach by offering modularity, high levels of customisation, and choice of themes. In addition to basic 32- and 64-bit systems, Bodhi maintains designated ISO images for Chromebooks and legacy machines. By default Bodhi has only five pre-installed applications: Midori, Terminology, PCManFM, ePhoto, and ePad. Additional software is available via AppCenter, a web-based software installation tool.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 38 (263), 6 months: 43 (238), 3 months: 48 (239), 4 weeks: 70 (198), 1 week: 56 (194)

Average visitor rating: 8.82/10 from 22 review(s).

cons: still looking for one perhaps more software needed on their apps download install page for newbie's

pros: it just works. Virtually everything I've installed, every piece of hardware(except my zune) work with alittle configuring. rolling distro w/ one click updater. the only limit to creating your system is your imagination. Used Bodhi since 2.* for the enlightenment . great distro on the real machine or a virtual box.

Discovered Bodhi within the first few days I merged to Linux. Found e17 to be a departure from everything else I had tried. Purely a Window manager enthusiast, appreciate the lightweight and speed.

Potential to theme Bodhi is unlimited, just the capability of the users imagination.

Personally would like to see Bodhi to move away from Ubuntu, stay strictly with Debian or even be systemd-free with Devuan.

Bodhi is an exceptional distribution, an awesome release.

Really nice distro with a beautiful and lightweight desktop. The Ubuntu LTS base makes it very stable and there is lot of online support for anything not related to the Moksha desktop. This is a brilliant alternative to Lubuntu for people that want a full featured desktop on an older machine or want to get the maximum performance out of a newer machine.
