Bodhi Linux Review – Enlightened Ubuntu

Filed under
Linux

We’re constantly seeing Ubuntu being used as a base for other distros, whether it’s official respins with a different desktop featured, more involved remakes such as Linux Mint that “fixes” the problems with Ubuntu, or lightweight/green versions of Canonical’s distro like wattOS. Bodhi is on the lightweight end of the scale, taking it the extreme by using Enlightenment as the desktop environment, and also including very few default apps as standard.

Showing off its roots, initial interactions with Bodhi are very familiar to anyone that has previously used Ubuntu. The installer has the exact same, simple layout and options, including the installation while setting up users, and downloading updates in the process as well. The live disc gives you a few booting options as well, with safe graphics modes or the ability to load into RAM so it can be run on older or slower systems. Installation is fairly quick, and it takes up very little space on the hard drive initially.
