Linux dark autumn clouds - Bodhi Linux is there!

But now, virtually out of nowhere, comes Bodhi Linux. Guess what? It's based on Ubuntu 10.04 in a most minimalistic set-up that can be extended in an optimum way to your own desire, software wishes and insights. It can run on tablets and on production units. It's what you make of it. It has a different, sleek, nice window manager, Enlightenment, that does its job nearly perfectly. Gone is all 'bloat' of the bigger brothers. Gone are the too many clicks of Unity and the 'non-intuitive' feeling of Gnome 3 shell. It's now just what you make of Bodhi. For all of them however applies that driver support (f.ex. ATI, NVidia, Wifi) is becoming more and more a problem. Even Bodhi needs a new user to find "Synaptic Package Manager" to install them. So, where do we go from here? Bodhi makes some heat under the leading distros, Mint and Ubuntu, for sure. Otherwise it wouldn't have become such a success in a matter of months.
Take a look at Bodhi, Unity vs. Gnome 3 and Windows 8 Beta...
