Not necessarily "In The News", but on sourceforge's homepage, it shows Bodhi as Community Choice Project of the Month! (Didn't notice it all January til just now)

Nothing is as simple as it seems at first, or as hopeless as it seems in the middle, or as finished as it seems in the end.

A somewhat recent review this month: http://www.linuxandu...eek-bodhi-linux

 

"Reviews" like this are so awful. They lack depth and this one has the gall to close with:

The only negative is that there are still a lot of bugs in desktop

 

No software is perfect, Bodhi included, but the reviewer doesn't mention hitting any issues and then closes with this blatantly false statement. Really annoying.

i also thought that was rather weird.  by nice i meant - at least there was a review and mention of Bodhi.  hope you did not take that the wrong way.  i also was not sure what he meant about all the glitches with the desktop.  i have been very pleased with my 1 1/2 years of daily use of bodhi and gnu/linux exclusively.  After 20 yrs of macs or such that is a serious compliment!

That hits the nail on the head. The final comment in the review ("still a lot of bugs") is not helpful at all. Just an empty phrase. 

 

Anyway, in my point of view yet the opposite is the case. Less is better, in regard to software. Bodhi's minimalistic approach is right and the best advice to be given is: Achieve your goals on computers with a minimum amount of work, i.e. avoid bloated software or superfluous useless knickknack.

 

To be honest, I have had a problem with the installation at first, but meanwhile I suppose it was of my own doing. For some time past all my machines run without errors. Bodhi is a first class operating system. Please keep up the good work.

Sneeky Linux youtube channel does an installation demo. Bodhi 4.2.0

 

and here is Sneeky's walkthrough of what you get with Bodhi with the app-pack installed. This is typical Sneeky, each video of a distro is a "what you get and does it work like it should" type video.
