Bodhi Linux - A Cool Linux Distribution Based On E17

Filed under
Linux

This is a review of Bodhi Linux - A light weight Linux distribution that runs the Enlightenment (E17) desktop. Bodhi Linux is unique because it is one of the few Linux distributions that is based on the Enlightenment E17 desktop.

I was really keen to try out Bodhi Linux because -

1. I wanted to try out Enlightenment (E17).
2. I was on the look out for a lightweight Linux OS that ran all my favorite programs.
3. I wanted to know if Bodhi Linux lives up to its promises.

With that goal in mind, I downloaded the latest version of Bodhi Linux (version 2.1.0-32 at the time). A few days later, Bodhi Linux team released a new version namely 2.2.0. That was not much of a problem for me, you will know why further below.

Bodhi Linux

Bodhi Linux is packaged as a LiveCD image. And it supports 32-bit, 64-bit, and also provides customized images for several ARM architectures such as Raspberry Pi, Nexus 7, Samsung Chromebook, and Genesi smartbook.

Xubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet - Fabulous

I have to say, Xubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet shattered my expectations. Obliterated them. Overall, I was expecting a distro that would be about as good as its parent. Instead, I got this fine piece of digital machinery, which purrs and meows and growls like a turbo-charged tiger, if this silly metaphor makes any sense. Or is it an analogy? Now, one tiny software glitch, plus one big regression that affects the entire family. That's the sum of my complains. On the plus side, Xubuntu fully supports the hardware, including the tricky UEFI stuff, it's fast, robust, elegant, rich in software and features, simple and fun to use, and it works well with anything I've thrown at it. By far the best distro of this year. I don't give out 10/10 lightly, but I'm inclined to do that right now, even though the few tiny problems we've had prevent me from doing that. However, the whole package reminds me of Fuduntu, really. Pure and simple and just good. 9.99999/10. Try it, you won't be disappointed. We're done here. Read more

A New Firefox OS phone

Last Monday, I bought the phone anyway. I must say that I am very pleased by its performance and very cheap price. One can swap the SIM card to use the phone with another carrier here, too. Read more
