Bodhi is a very nice, minimalistic and enlightened Linux desktop. You will need a 300 MHz processor, 128 MB Ram and 1.5 GB HD space to run it properly.
Bodhi was developed mainly for 2 things: The Enlightenment Dekstop and User Choice. Enlightenment is not just a window manager for Linux but it also is a suite of libraries which helps you create beautiful user interfaces with less work and without having to fight with the traditional toolkits. Bodhi is fast and elegant.
The developer says that because Enlightenment is under heavy development, new releases will be pushed out every week, so you will have your Bodhi always updated. If you decide to use this little program, you will be able to take your own decisions about the default team and system layout.
Also, you can choose the applications for completing your computing tasks. Some applications are already installed on Bodhi, such as Firefox, LXTerminal, Synaptic and Elementary Nautilus, but beyond this, you can install any application you want, for any task via Bodhi Software Center.
Bodhi is built on top of an Ubuntu 10.04 core and it uses dpkg and apt-get for package management.
Bodhi sets itself apart from all the other Linux distros because it uses Enlightenment desktop.
The name Bodhi comes from the Buddhist term for "Enlightenment", and it also is a type of a sacred tree. The logo of Bodhi is a leaf of that tree.
Why is Bodhi famous?
Bodhi is famous because it is a special type of Linux, one which uses Enlightenment desktop. Not many Linux distros use it, so that really makes it special.
