Talking I am sold on Bodhi


Having worked with Bodhi a few weeks on my new Desktop, that is not a low performance system at all (AMD Ryzen, 32 GB RAM, 10 TB HDD, 512 GB SSD) I am sold.

Will install it on my Laptop (8GB, i7, 0.5 TB SDD). KDE has become an annoyance.

Love it.

Bodhi is one distro i have never tried. Not sure why, just never tried it. What is the default DE/WM? Also, what is it based on or is it an independent distro?

No it is not independent distro. Bodhi depends on Ubuntu 18.04 as base with EFL and Moksha desktop on the top. Moksha is Enlightenment 17 DE/WM fork with many fixes ported from later E releases and new features.

Ah ok, thanks for the info. I have not used Enlightenment since the 16 series. I know it is only similar in name now.

I am also sold on bodhi (currently running 5.0 64bit). My first install from USB rather than CD/DVD, and have not looked back. Actually I changed to bodhi after my ubuntu 18.04 LTS was 'ruined' after an autoremove was performed. Loved the small initial install footprint, and being able to choose the software that I would use on this system instead of the 'bloat' that one ends up with after an ubuntu install.
As with ANY linux installation, there will be issues. But mine have been small, and I can wholly recommend the help that one recieves from this forum. So, if one decides to take the plunge and install bodhi, make this bodhi forum available ASAP. Reading existing posts/threads can often be enough to arrive at the info needed to solve many problems. However, ASK questions if needed. Provide as much info as possible as to your experience and help is never long in coming.
