I was using Macpup and wanted a distro with better ubunutu repository and the familiar apt-get and then Bodhilinux appeared...
I would definitely vote for it.

I luv bodhi !

1) It is much more stable than ubuntu. I use to update my system on regular basis. on every 2nd schedule of updating ubuntu, I saw a problem ( whether it s sound or screen resolution) . ubuntu forum advised to use proposed updates for fixing problem.

2) I am using bodhi since May 2011 but I never had to reinstall it. it's size on my hard disk is still 2.5 GB ( even after daily updating) whereas in case of ubuntu it almost occupied its partition till I installed new release.

3) minimal

4) light

5) excellent forum

6) latest updated linux compared to other small linux derivatives. ( other still use older kernels)

Only had extensive use of Mageia 1 so I'll vote for it.

Mageia's Media Players work great which is a big plus and Xfce is problem free; which is not the experience I had with Fedora. It came with a bunch of common Applications and I believe Abiword was one of them? I have not had it booted in a week or so. Urpmi's GUI works nicely as well. It's not absolutely perfect but for an easy to use and install OS primarily for a home computer user, it should keep everyone happy. I fail to see how a Mandrake derivative does not have more market share. For an easy to use/install Distro, Mageia 1 is well worth the space it takes up on your hard drive.
