Hello,
 
Thank you for the wonderfulness of Bodhi, and the forum to help us (currently Window 7 users) get there. I have already been reading some of the posts and guides, and that is helping me think about the factors and steps in this time of transition from Windows to Bodhi Linux.  I write this as I download Bodhi 3.2.
 
I have been here on this forum in a previous incarnation! What's different this time is that my wife (who is, in the nitty gritty sense, tech averse) is now committed to our move to Bodhi Linux. This happened after we read about Windows 10 recently: essentially about a loss of control over our operating system and desktop (even hardware, given that Microsoft are now placing limits on what hardware certain versions of Windows will support). We were taken a back to discover that we would have no control over updates, the addition or withdrawal of features etc. - and there are great concerns about privacy.
 
To indicate our commitment (to ourselves) towards moving away from an absolute dependence on Windows to using Bodhi Linux as our main operating system, we also decided to become Bodhi members - as much for ourselves, and also of course for the community. 
 
Thanks once again for being here. I am gladdened to join you. 

Windows7x64; Dell xps7100 AMD PhenomIIx6 (no uefi); Familiarising myself with Bodhi 3.2x64 and Linux in Virtualbox for Windows, while gradually learning and planning to move to Bodhi as my main OS. 




A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

Welcome - don't hesitate with linux - jump right in - Bodhi is a very sweet distro.  setup may take some time for what you may want but once it is running it is stable beyond belief.

Greetings from across the pond, glad both of you were openminded enough to try something new, without the need to upgrade the equipment nor renew any despicable EULAs. The only upgrade you needed was a "soft" upgrade to wife 1.1 from 1.0. :) And maybe those drapes she pointed out to you not too long ago.


Screenshots of e17 at the Gallerie des shedied and here for just one only. Incidentally,why don't you try our friendly IRC channel for some help? (link up top) or watch an e-ducational clip that's 2 and a half minutes long
