Here's my suggested rewrite of 'What is Bodhi Linux'. Would you like me to implement these changes myself on the wiki?
The word Bodhi (rhymes with Jodie) is derived from the Sanskrit word meaning Enlightenment. Bodhi Linux is a Linux-based operating system based upon two things:
- The Enlightenment desktop
Minimilism: Bodhi aims to strike a balance between providing nothing but a command line interface and including everything and the kitchen sink. So we provide you with a base system that is functional but not bloated. Bodhi’s default application set takes up less than 10MB of space in total, and includes just ePad (text editor), EFM (file manager), ePhoto (image viewer), Midori (web browser), and eepDater (update manager). We believe that our users are smart enough to choose their own applications, the best of which can be installed through our AppCenter.
The Enlightenment desktop: This is fast, flexible, and as fancy as you want it to be. Unlike many modern Linux desktops which go out of their way to hide configuration options from the end user, Enlightenment exposes all, allowing you to tinker to your heart’s content. Beyond just the configuration options, you can also customize your desktop with a selection of themes from our AppCenter.
