Bodhi Linux

Bodhi Linux

Bodhi Linux is a lightweight, minimal, enlightened Linux distribution based on Ubuntu that features the Enlightenment window manager. The philosophy for the distribution is to provide a minimal base system so that users can populate it with the software they want. It includes some essential softwares by default are file browsers (EFM), a web browser (Midori), Leafpad, Synaptic and a terminal emulator (Terminology). It does not include software or features that its developers deem unnecessary. Bodhi Linux developers maintain an online database of lightweight software that can be installed in one click via apturl. It is highly customizable and choice of themes are available to make desktop elegant as you want.

System requirements include 128 MB RAM, 2.5 GB hard disk space, and a 300 MHz processor. 32 bit processors without PAE capability are supported on same terms as PAE-enabled ones. Only difference between the Bodhi versions is that an older kernel is used. Bodhi provides rich desktop effects and animations that do not require high end computer hardware.

Bodhi Linux is derived from the Ubuntu long term support (LTS) releases, so support follows the same pattern: Security bug fixes are released on a daily basis throughout the five year period. As opposed to Ubuntu, Bodhi has no short term support. An installed Bodhi Linux can be upgraded to the latest state via command line or package manager.
