My Thoughts about Bodhi Linux 3.0

The Distribution is exceptionally lightweight and rock solid. The good of minimal distro that I don’t get any crap. The visual effects are really appealing. Enlightenment is pretty. Nothing seems to break in my testing. I am going to recommend this Distribution to every Ubuntu fan.

If you have an old machine and your current distro lags, you must have a hand on Bodhi. The ISO image is nearly 600MB in size and the installation is pretty simple. Let us know yours feedback on the Bodhi Linux as well as this article.

Time to say bye for now. Keep connected. Don’t Forget to like and share the article if you like it. You may go through the short video posted below which fairly depicts the testing of Bodhi.

    It’s a fabulous distro. It magically managed to combine two uncombinable features: eye-candy and nimbleness. Besides it’s rock solid stable. Well-done!
