Bodhi Linux 2.2 review - Square peg for round hole

Filed under
Linux

Despite overwhelmingly warm feedback from pretty much everyone to my first review of Bodhi Linux almost two years ago, which pretty much sealed the deal, I decided to give it another shot. My label as an idiot, so to speak, notwithstanding, Bodhi has changed quite a bit since version 0.15. Now at increment 2.2, it continues its mission as a minimalist distribution based on Ubuntu.

All right, so let us have another go with this distribution. Bear in mind it's Ubuntu underneath all that, adorned with the Enlightenment 17 desktop environment. As you know, my requirements from a desktop distribution are fairly strict and harsh and revolve around simplicity, stability and productivity. Can Bodhi 2.2 handle it?
