Quick Look: Bodhi Linux 1.2

Filed under
Linux

A while back I did a review of Bodhi Linux 1.0 for Desktop Linux Reviews. Bodhi has recently been updated to version 1.2 so a quick look is definitely in order. Bodhi, in case you aren’t familiar with it, is an Ubuntu derivative that uses the Enlightenment desktop.

Bodhi is more of a minimalist’s distribution. If you’re looking for tons of software and bloat, you won’t find it in Bodhi. It’s really geared toward those who want to choose their applications & feature sets rather than have the developers foist it on them.

What’s New

Here’s a sample of what’s new in this release:

Linux 3.0.0
Enlightenment built from SVN on 09/06/11
Midori 0.4.0

As the update announcement page states, this release is pretty much geared toward updating applications.
