Bodhi Linux did not score super well on my review, but there are some good reasons one may want to use the distro. This is my list of reasons to use Bodhi Linux.

no snaps, huzzah! I do use flatpak for Gimp though. not because I need the latest version (would actually love to stay with 2.8 forever, but can't figure out how), but because .DEB distros seem to not let me have Gimp and Mypaint installed at the same time. Oh well. anyway, thanks for the helpful review!

Very good review , I am not a distro-jumper and have been a long time Lubuntu user; I simply love the performance. I just got my hands on an older machine and I have heard good things about Bodhi and I like that it no extra software. My only gripe is let's not be so critical of snaps! Simplicity equates to effectiveness. And I believe that software should be accessible.

I ran Bodhi on my original Dell laptop after support for Windows XP ended. I found it to be a nice lightweight system that I got to install software that I WANTED to use.

What Linux distribution would you recommend for an Intel Pentium I 133 MHz with 32 MB RAM, a 4 MB graphics card and a 1 GB hard drive?

I want to be able to:
– Browse the Internet.
– Watch low quality YouTube videos (no HD, please, the computer cannot handle that!)
– Do some basic C++ programming with C++17.
– Listen to some chansons.

The Linux distribution must be as user friendly as Windows 95; preferably a Linux distribution that resembles Windows 95 so that the switch will be easy. I also want a Linux distribution that I don't have to re-install 6 times a year (which I have to do now, with Windows 95).

Browsing the Internet with Windows 95 SUCKS; the number of web pages I can visit AT ALL are a very select few.

bodhi is great, but why no window snapping for half n half viewing, sure oyu can do it manually, but why not just have it

I agree about the Ubuntu forums. If you ask about a buntu spin in the Ubuntu forums you will usually get an answer, ask about Manaro, Antergos etc in an Arch forum and you'll usually get a condescending reply to go to the Manjaro forum as it ain't Arch.

This is a bummer. I'm subbed to you and even have the bell clicked yet I haven't received a notification to your new videos nor do you even appear on my main page. I actually have to open the left pane and select your channel to know that you've done some new videos. God, I'm getting tired of YouTube.

Loved your use of the word 'clunky':) Perfect description of Bodhi for me personally. Still, I suspect if you were a pretty experienced user and had an old 32bit system, Bodhi could be a good option for you. Pep/Lite/MX/Arco would be my choices though 🙂 On a side note, I found the Solus KDE rc1 ISO yesterday (been out since October and I didn't know lol). Just loved it… Solus is generally pretty newbie friendly overall though. Thanks again for all your work, Tom.
