What’s Bodhi Linux?
It’s a lightweight Linux distro,( distro is a term used to describe a specific distribution of Linux that is brought up from the common Linux operating system and includes additional applications. Red Hat, Debian and SuSe are all examples of a distro.) based on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS that uses the Moksha window manager. Moksha is a fork of Enlightenment, a self-described ‘stacking window manager for the X Window System’.
Like other lightweight Linux distros, Bodhi Linux also ships with a minimal set of apps. The idea is to provide the users with the apps based on their own needs, taste and preferences.
Bodhi Linux 4.2.0 Features
The primary goal of this update release is to simply keep the current ISO image up to date. But also does bring a few changes with it. The 64bit releases utilize the 4.10 kernel by default and the Swami Control panel is now installed by default .This utility provides some easy-to-access options, like adding, editing and removing startup applications, adjusting the date and time, keyboard layout, and LightDM .
This is the first release in which they are dropping their 32bit PAE discs. we would like to clarify that they are still supporting 32bit computers, but if you need to install the 32bit version of Bodhi Linux the only version they are preparing is the Legacy ISO image. The Legacy image will work on PAE and non-PAE 32bit hardware in the same manner. If your computer needs a PAE kernel to utilize all of it’s memory, it is likely better for you to be using a 64bit operating system . still If you do feel the need to use a PAE kernel on a 32bit operating system with Bodhi, you can always install the Legacy release and then change kernels afterwards.
