Just wanted to flag, that when doing a search on Distrowatch, and choosing the category: for Netbooks, 

Bodhi does not come up in the proposed results. 


Given that it has pretty modest system requirements, that it has a non-pae version, and it seems to works well on netbooks, perhaps you guys would like to have them fix that.  

A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

Distrowatch search today, and still no BODHI. 

parameters: linux-based, for netbooks, active. 


(but bodhi does show up if you change netbooks to old hardware - the problem is, old hardware category does not include drivers for things like on-board wifi chipsets, power-saving management, and so on)


is this intentional, to avoid the hardware support headaches of laptops and netbooks?

I doubt that bodhi linux as a distro team has anything to do with how bodhi is displayed on distrowatch.
