Bodhi Linux - A Cool Linux Distribution Based On E17

Filed under
Linux

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

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.

Dale Raby: How do you Fedora?

Dale started using Linux around 1999 when he became disconcerted with his Windows 95 computer and a young clerk in an office supply store told him about Linux. “I started reading some of the magazines, most notably Maximum Linux and eventually got to know their senior editor, Woody Hughes and Show Me the Code columnist Mae Ling Mak,” said Raby. His first distribution was Mandrake 6.5 which came in a box with a boot floppy. Raby manages a small gun shop in Green Bay, Wisconsin. He is also an author with four published books: The Post-Apocalyptic Blacksmith, 777 Bon Mots for Gunslighers and Other Real Men, The Wives of Jacob I, and In the Beginning. Read more
