Bodhi Linux 5.0.0 was released yesterday. I take it for a quick spin in a VM. Bodhi is based on Ubuntu 18.04 and sports the Moksha desktop environment. It’s very light and blazing fast!

WARNING: If you want to blow this thing up don't run sudo apt-get upgrade … Holy cow, it literally kills this with tons and tons of upgrades, command questions, etc..

Hello. Your videos are very interesting and exciting! I'm from Moldova. It's the part of Russia. Many people of our counry are interested in Unix systems. Many people prefer Linux distro instead of Windows or Mac OS.
I want to suggest you cooperation. I can translate your videos into Russian. Your videos will be even more popular. If you are interested, you can write me. nearestway@gmail.com

Using this on my thin client t610 that i rdp into my main editing pc. Its flawless. I added a 5450 1gb which gave great youtube performance. I added ufw (gufw doesnt work ) remmina for the rdp open vpn if i travel and pia with deluge. The lack of desktop just means its always clean for me. But all in its great for my thin client and editing is a breeze as its all realtime.

I just installed Bodhi 5.0 on my old IBM Thinkpad R51 with the legacy install and it just flies. I doubt this computer ran this well brand new in 2004. I could seriously see this turning an antic into a daily driver.

I wonder if someone could contact mint and other linux distros in order to request a feature for those of us who can't use a mouse to control the desktop.
Any help from the linux community would be greatly appreciated. Like other people with physiological/neurological issues I can touch type – which makes keyboard use rather simple & easy for me. But I can't use a mouse to control the desktop.
I can no longer use any other distro on linux apart from KDE – (which is awesome); but there are times I would like to try something different. But I can't.
Simple reason being: I use the number pad on my keyboard to control my desktop. KDE implementation of this is right out of the box and works perfectly. (Use the keyboard to control mouse movement and functions). This is rather poorly implemented in windows & some linux distros = "mouse keys" is awful and only offers slow & jerky movement of the mouse icon (even when altered to maximum speed). But many linux distros are dropping even that broken after thought. I'm pretty fast with the keypad mouse movements – so it's torture to use this fearture in other distros.
In KDE – I can increase the speed & precision – timing – pacing & acceleration is dynamic and smoothly implemented.
Accessibility options for people who can't use a mouse in linux are now broken in 2019 and being removed. Why? Maybe someone who has some push in the linux development groups – could help those of us (mouse challenged) people in a small but significant way. As I love to try and use different distros just to see what they are like – but it's pretty much impossible now.
Windows mouse keys (i refuse to use windows) is slightly better but still a broken after thought with jerky movements and no precision. Thank you – Linux People.

I think the app pack is a minimal download. It is counter intuitive, but the additional programs are on the regular download. Good review though.

One year ago when I changed my distro, I would have choose bodhi If is was using Enlightenment. While I understand its reasons to fork e17 at the time, e17 development progressed a lot since, and moshka is behind e17 now.

Interesting distro. 219 MB of RAM usage on an Ubuntu-based distro is impressive. I'm not a fan of a web browser they chose as a default. I wanted to like Midori, I tried it couple times, but it's quite buggy and it seems that it isn't developed any more. Maybe Epiphany would be a better choice?

Tonight I have inserted my SSD with Siduction LXQt 0.13, and removed my other SSD.

I have played in Siduction on this SSD for about a week before, but I don't recall if I ever updated it. I was surprised by what a headache it is to update Buster version of Debian. The trick is to log-out, and in the tty login as root and then do apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade. But the forums say that there is more too it than that and that you need to be in "init 3" when you download, and in "init 5" when you reboot or something to that effect. I had no clue what that meant or how to do it. The update and reboot seemed to work but there were numerous message way above my pay-grade. I now have kernel 4.18.3, which is the latest of any of my installs, even including Fedora 29 ( pre-Beta ). I know Rawhide is using 4.19, but haven't tried that yet. This Siduction is using mesa 1.18.6 which is also later than my other distros. I don't see anything really to complain about. LXQt is so snappy, but after being in Plasma on Tumbleweed, it feels sort of 2016ish. Unfortunately, I do not know enough about Siduction or Buster to make any statements. I assume Buster is a long ways from being ready for the general public, but it seems as stable as Fedora Rawhide or OpenSuSE Tumbleweed.

Siduction is listed at 73 on Distrowatch, and fallen to 100 for last 3 months. But they have not publicly released an iso since May, and the update process gets you systemd 239 and most all of the very latest packages available to the Buster eco-system. So I would say, it belongs around 48 or so, or that it is currently underrated. The next iso, should really be slick, especially by the summer of 2019, and after Buster becomes stable. Meaning, I think 2020, will be the Year of the Siduction Desktop.

I first started getting into Linux with Bodhi 3.0 and learned a lot on that release. Now I'm an Arch user but now seeing the Moksha DE I'm seriously contemplating installing it as my DE (which is available in the AUR). I sure do miss having a DE that was as customizable as E17 was.

Bodhi Linux 5.0.0 now available with Ubuntu 18.04 base, By Brian Fagioli

> "Now tried it. Too minimal. Ran the "LIVE"version. Installed SIMPLESCREEN-RECORDER".
> Recorded this installation to my Dell notebook. Will post the video on my YouTube channel soon.

> "It took less than ten minutes to install; including the recording, in real-time; without any type of virtualization used at all.
> My Dell XPS-15 (2013 model) is running 4x Windows and upto ten (10) Linux operating systems.

> "This Bodhi at last has escaped from the "Enlightenment" nastiness of the past.
> Grub-customizer installs easily as usual. With its text-GUI, it arranged my boot-menu in the "correct" order.
> Default operating system is any of the ten W10's, than "System Setup" of the computers BIOS, and then eight of ten available partitions for my installed Linux operating systems.
> All of the operating systems have "SAFE" mode user selectable, as usual (fancy keyboard "triggers").
> All the Linux operating systems have selection of Linux kernels to use, if added.

> "Bodhi is so simplistic in applications, that only "experts" who know their applications can be ok with it, imho.
> "Personally I prefer Peppermint, another Ubuntu-based operating system. It is much less frugal with applications; more "standard Ubuntu".

I do wonder why they used PC Man. Nothing against it, I use I3 Manjaro, so that's the file manager I use, but Enlightnement has it's own file manager, so I wonder why they didn't use that.

Very nice is has a 32 bits version as well!
This new release seems nice again.
Great review and nice theming fiddling (<– always like that) DT

@dt i agree to all you said about bodhi. super fast, super minimal, in short very well done.BUT try to localize it to something other than us/en and you are trapped to a pure arch/debian level. No biggie for me as an advanced (german) linux user but probably a showstopper for no native en/us noobs.
