Go back to your first posting here and EDIT it. That will allow you to edit the title, I believe. This thread is already in the Bodhi sub. I'll report it to a mod and see if they will Pin it for you. Pinning a post is most definitely up to a Mod.

Have fun! STAY HEALTHY!

I still use Bodhi 5 as my daily driver, but I'm not really involved in the project any more aside from making sure the servers stay paid for that host the website / package repositories.

If you are writing a history of the project and are looking for specific details that aren't online feel free to ask and I'll fill in what blanks I can. Looks like the important details have been summed up here mostly already though.

Hard to believe this is a project I helped start over a decade ago. Time wisks away so quickly.

@Jeff91...

Long time, no seeum! I believe your account and dev status are still active over at Scot's Newsletter Forums. You oughta' pop in for a visit. There are folks there who still remember you and Bodhi!

Cheers, brother!

I started Bodhi to make my life easier. At the time I was maintaining almost a dozen desktop systems with some form of the enlightenment desktop on them and there wasn't a distro out there for easily keeping that up to date on the Ubuntu LTS core. Bodhi was started to make having the latest E17 desktop on an Ubuntu LTS base easy - and I think we did that pretty well.

My undergrad, and then masters degree, are in mathematics. Bodhi and most of my software things were always hobbies.

The name "Bodhi" is Sanskrit for Enlightenment - so basically just a play on words based on the desktop it utilized. If I recall I did a Google search for enlightenment synonyms and it was a word that stood out.

As for why I'm not around much anymore - I've got a wife + two kids and a third on the way. I'm self employed and work anywhere from 60-80 hours most weeks which doesn't leave much time for hobbies outside of work.

Be careful about posting copyrighted content. I believe it's against LQ.org rules and it my whiz off the original authors. However, if you do post, make sure you give proper credit where it's due.

Have fun!
