Bodhi Turns Two, Looking Back and Forward

Filed under
Linux

Bodhi Linux is an Ubuntu-based distribution that features the Enlightenment desktop and a noticeably lack of included applications. It's main goal is to offer a light-weight high-performing base on which to build your ideal desktop system. It recently turned two years old and founder Jeff Hoogland is looking back.

It was two years ago November 16 that Hoogland announced his new project. Because he couldn't find an E17 desktop system to meet his needs, he figured he'd have to make his own. After cutting his teeth on a kitchen-sink Pinguy E17 Remix, which is now defunct, he struck Linux gold with Bodhi. Five point-0 releases were tested by users and by the time version 1.0.0 was released in March 2011 it had some high profile fans and hit about number 21 on Distrowatch's Page Hit Ranking.
