Bodhi Linux 1.1.0 in Review

Hash: SHA1

Quick Look at Bodhi Linux 1.1.0 

,----[ Quote ]
| A lot has been written about Bodhi Linux in its short existence. Bodhi 
| appeared out of nowhere not even a year ago it seems and quickly gained 
| followers aplenty. Usually there's a good reason for something like this. So 
| much has been written in such little amount of time, I'm not going to go into 
| all the aspects of this little distro, for example that Bodhi means 
| Enlightenment, a nice word play on the default desktop environment of choice 
| E17, just a quick look.
| Actually, mentioning or for that matter running Bodhi without this desktop 
| would make little sense as it is its sole purpose to bring us a nicely 
| customized and integrated Enlightenment desktop that the lead developer and 
| founder Jeff Hoogland evidently is so fond of. This is tightly wrapped around 
| a Ubuntu 10.04 LTS core with an updated 2.6.39 kernel in 1.1.0, a good choice 
| that guarantees utmost stability, at least in Ubuntu terms, and steers clear 
| of potential pitfalls later versions might have introduced with all the 
| upheaval moving from Gnome to Unity. Thus, after almost all earlier releases 
| were test releases, this latest one promises a degree of maturity, which is 
| probably underscored by the fact that it hasn't been updated for nearly three 
| months, which for the Bodhi project is a long time.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
