Linux Distro To Try: Bodhi Linux

Bodhi Linux is an elegant and lightweight Ubuntu-based distribution featuring Moksha, an Enlightenment-17-based desktop environment.

The project takes a decidedly minimalist approach by offering modularity, high levels of customisation, and choice of themes.

In addition to basic 32- and 64-bit systems, Bodhi maintains designated ISO images for Chromebooks and legacy machines.

By default Bodhi has only five pre-installed applications: Midori, Terminology, PCManFM, ePhoto, and ePad.

Additional software is available via AppCenter, a web-based software installation tool.

When the update for Bodhi Linux 3.2.1 came out, the announcement read that it was the last update for the 3 branch.

This is our last scheduled update release of the Bodhi 3 branch. Existing Bodhi 3 users do not need to re-install to obtain this latest release – they simply need to perform all of their current system updates. In addition to shipping with the latest software in the repositories this release also includes a number of small improvements. Most notably: Moksha 0.2.0 is here by default. Linux Kernel 4.2 for improved hardware support. Multi-Language support for the installer again. Improved UEFI support. A number of small improvements/bug fixes to the default Radiance Theme LibreOffice 5.1 (in the AppPack releases).
