This is a review of Bodhi Linux - A light weight Linux distribution that runs the Enlightenment (E17) desktop. Bodhi Linux is unique because it is one of the few Linux distributions that is based on the Enlightenment E17 desktop.
I was really keen to try out Bodhi Linux because -
1. I wanted to try out Enlightenment (E17).
2. I was on the look out for a lightweight Linux OS that ran all my favorite programs.
3. I wanted to know if Bodhi Linux lives up to its promises.
With that goal in mind, I downloaded the latest version of Bodhi Linux (version 2.1.0-32 at the time). A few days later, Bodhi Linux team released a new version namely 2.2.0. That was not much of a problem for me, you will know why further below.
Bodhi Linux is packaged as a LiveCD image. And it supports 32-bit, 64-bit, and also provides customized images for several ARM architectures such as Raspberry Pi, Nexus 7, Samsung Chromebook, and Genesi smartbook.
