Linux Achieves Bodhi Enlightenment

Filed under
Linux

Until recently, most desktop Linux distros were about the same on the surface. What differentiated them were things like configurability. These days many distros look and feel like unique stand alone operating systems–not like just slightly different flavors of GNU based Linux. Then there’s Bodhi.

The developers at Bodhi have created a desktop operating system in which the elegant but lightweight Enlightenment window manager is used as the desktop environment and have wedded it to the nuts and bolts of the operating system so completely that desktop and operating system are truly “one” in the classical metaphysical sense.

You could install and run KDE, GNOME or any other desktop on Bodhi if you wanted, but there would be no sense in that as Bodhi Linux’s only reason for being is to be the perfect platform for Enlightenment.
