As many of you know, I am a big fan of Enlightenment, and no distribution does a better job of combining the wonder of E17 and the ease of Ubuntu than does Bodhi Linux. Recently the developers of Bodhi Linux released version 1.2 which has a number of solid updates, such as:

Linux 3.0.0
Enlightenment built from SVN on 09/06/11
Midori 0.4.0
