Yeah that's an odd thing to say, I completely missed that weird comment. The new release was only a few weeks ago. The website is fine, he's on this forum, he's on discord and responds fairly often, he responds on reddit too. The only thing is no more dedicated forums, I installed bodhi for the first time the day before the dedicated bodhi forums disappeared so I don't miss them as much as others, other than in google searches, but most are on internet archive.

I know I do not like Linux Lite, perhaps Puppy ? This is a small Acer Notebook 1.6ghz that I just want a small OS on to take with me on the fly, that works basically "out of the box." Any suggestions there ?
I have been running Linux Mint for 5 yrs and now have Makulu LinDoz on my desktop. I had installed ChaletOS on the Acer and liked it, but it too is no longer supported.
Thanks for all your help !

I've been a Bodhi user for years. As far as I know the developer is still developing Bodhi. He just erased the forums because of some European legislation, that he felt threatened him. That was too bad because there was a lot of useful info in there. Now the website forum link points here. Alot of the Bodhi staff are here. I just talked to a bunch of them the other day.

maybe i should add y 1 cent into the slackware and manjaro area though i never used them. many people not familiar add their 2 cents here without knowing the bodhi experience. sometimes their info is apropros and sometimes i have seen they are way of base.all i am saying after a 16 plus hr day. man be nice.

that was nice, if one develops the distro then who better should know the ins and outs of it? I've tried it briefly, and almost tried it again yesterday, but it is based on Ubuntututututututututututututututu. so I canceled that idea.

Thumbs up Unable to Mount USB

I want to thank all of U for ur input and ideas, especially BW-userx, however I have decided after doing 4 installs of Bodhi, to bail on it. Seems too much time and energy to spend when all I want is a simple "out of the box" working Distro as a back-up system to take on the fly for basic internet functions and email. I am looking at MX-Linux, small, looks user friendly and minimal resource grabber AND it comes with a User Manual, wat a great idea !
Thanks again for giving me ur time, it was certainly appreciated.
