Bodhi Linux

Filed under

Along my quest to find a Linux distro to call home I stumbled across quite a gem – Bodhi Linux. It has to be said that is one of the less popular distributions but, it is by far the most fun!

Originally an Ubuntu varient I think this one in particular has grown very well on its own. The only noticeable thing that it relates to ubuntu with its the package manager.

For someone who wants a quick speedy no hassle install I would definately recommend this! It took me no longer than 10 mins from boot up to full install! Don’t be tricked into thinking it is on new fast hardware, this baby installed through a USB DVD drive onto a lappytop that still has a floppy drive! Oh yes speedy speedy indeed!
