Try Bodhi Linux for Beauty and Customizability

Filed under
Linux

Scarcely a day goes by without an update being released for one Linux distribution or another, but today saw the launch of one I think is worth some attention.

It's Bodhi Linux, specifically--a young Ubuntu derivative that features the elegant and lightweight Enlightenment window manager along with a wide assortment of attractive themes and a high degree of customizability. Though the project hasn't even been around for a year yet, Bodhi already ranks at No. 22 on DistroWatch's page hit list--not far from Windows-like Zorin OS, which I covered a while back.

Version 1.2.0 was the Bodhi release launched on Thursday. While not a truly major update to the stable version 1.0.0 released earlier this year, the new version reveals an increasingly mature and fully up-to-date operating system that offers a nice alternative to Ubuntu and its controversial Unity desktop.

ASF publishes long-overdue Code Of Conduct
