Bodhi Linux 3.0.0 Released – Detailed Review and Installation Instructions
21. A group of icons to power-off, suspend, Lock, Reboot, Hibernate and logout.
Everything seems tempting, delicious and catchy. Time to Install the distribution from Live session.
22. Double click on ‘Install Bodhi Linux 3.0.0‘ from the dock on the top and click continue.
23. No need to say, you need to click ‘continue‘ but Notice that Bodhi is asking for 4GB available space, plugged into power source and a working Internet connection.
24. Time to select Installation type. Be careful to take backup before erasing disk but again, “Real men don’t make backup, they just upload their stuff to public ftp and let the world mirror it ;)”.
25. A pop-out window that says – write the changes to disk?, Proceed only if you have backup. To Proceed click continue.
26. Time zone selection – Select time zone based upon your geographical location.
27. Your keyboard layout selection.
28. Time to enter your name, computer name, username and password. You may choose to login automatically as well and choose to encrypt your home folder.

30. Almost finished copying files notification message. In the mean you may read the information on community.
31. Huraah! Finally installation finished. Time to reboot machine. You may continue testing it and choose to reboot later.
32. Message to remove installation media and press return key.
33. Rebooted and got this in no second.

37. When tried moving an open windows, it shows the x,y co-ordinates being used by the particular windows.
38. A hand on apt-get install. It went perfect.
39. A kind of visual (red) alert when I tried to move my cursor beyond my shell prompt to the left. Ohh it’s just awesome.
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.
