Roll your own apps Maybe a dev-type profile?

Might be a good idea, but may not be feasible for the direction Bodhi is going. It could make Bodhi as friendly as they come. My 0.02

Although these packages are good for new users, but the best choice is to install what you need manually. Since Bodhi is very minimal, it is good start for such thinks (OS directed for doing some thing only).
I doubt that Bodhi will ever go to DVD version which allow to select such profiles, unless Timmy makes something with Bloathi version of his.

But there could be a script on the Appcenter for installing developer tools. First thing that comes to my mind is:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r)But of course you could come up with some more useful packages and all would be installed in one session.
Just my 4 cents (a lot of inflation going on here )

I agree even though I am a new user and dont know as much about it as seasoned vets. I like it the way it is. Let me pick and choose what I want and dont want. I dont need the extra bloatware and unneccessaries that other distros tend to "cram" down users throats. Thats one reason I got away from them.

I completely agree. Bodhi as is (without installing anything from the appcenter or synaptic) is surprisingly functional. As a Python programmer, I really wouldn't have to install anything more. Naturally I do but I really like the flexibility of doing so as my own peculiar tastes dictate.
