Fully agree ... although I don't think this is a bad thing, au contraire ... I like to customize but I hate having to tinker with my OS for hours if I just want to watch a movie or (beware !!) print a letter ... thats why I like Bodhi, it makes easy things easy and still gives you a lot of room for improvement and customizing
+1 on best distro

I registered on this forum with single purpose in mind, that is, to express my appreciation for this distro.
First of all, thanks for bringing back fun and candy into Linux world. Now I am a converted Bodhi cult member.
There are so many things that I like about this system that I will only point the most crucial ones:
1) Core system without applications, freedom of choice: I love it, the first thing I usually do when I install one of popular distros is the removal of 70% of the pre-installed applications, I do not use at all ChatX, Transmission, Dropbox, some of Libreoffice applications, Facebook enhancements and many, many, many, MANY!!! other programs. Anyway, even if there is an application installed I usually choose to download another one that better suits my preferences. So that's a Biggie for me :-)
2) It's incredibly fast and responsive on my 5-years old laptop. Seriously, KDE and GNOME might be easy to use, but they slow my machine so much that Windows 7 Starter or Home are much better choice. I am not a Linux geek and I have not heard about Enlightenment interface before but it is pure candy. I love it. My fav interface so far. I used Lxde before. But this one is amazingly beautiful. I like the vivid, optimistic colors. Did I say that I love it? I had two times some error but I am willing to forgive it everything because it is so cute and configurable.
3) Choice to download application package (*.bod) - brilliant idea! I have incredibly slow connection at home, but I can easily and quickly download applications of my choice in my friend's house and then save it on pendrive and install on my laptop. Kudos!
To cap it all. I used to have dual-boot, Windows plus Linux distro (Ubuntu, Mint, Fedora, etc...) I was even willing to learn something about Arch Linux so that I could have quick and responsive system and individualize every aspect of it, but I was a bit scared by the amount of information I need to learn to use it so that I postponed it. But now I have just formated my hard drive I installed Bodhi as my only system. And I LOVE it. Thank you for the great work!!!
