Bodhi Linux Is A Fast, Minimalistic Enlightenment (E17) Linux Distribution Based On Ubuntu

Bodhi Linux is a new minimalistic Linux distro that uses the Enlightenment (E17) desktop. It's based on Ubuntu 10.04, however some packages have been backported from Ubuntu 10.10 - such as the 2.6.35 kernel. Also, the Enlightenment packages are updated weekly with new builds from SVN.

he default Bodhi Linux theme looks very geekish, using black and green which at first I thought it would be annoying but I quickly got used to it and further more I ended up loving it by the time I've finished writing this post. Don't worry though, it can be easily changed if you don't like it from the Enlightenment menu.

 

Even though it is minimalistic, Bodhi Linux tries to cover every little aspect to make your desktop experience enjoyable. And for everything else, the new online software center (which should be available soon - read on for more info) will allow you to install any extra packages you may need to further tweak or enhance Bodhi with minimum effort.
