In Topic: Bodhi 4.3.1 Released

15 October 2017 - 01:19 PM

@Flymo: I admire your gumption dealing with Win 10 that way and working to persuade users over to Bodhi.  Well done. I fear I'm stuck with Windows for the long haul, and while most of the systems I use are currently on Win 7, my wife's new ASUS tablet / transformer is 10 and my work system probably will be soon. From my limited exposure to it, I'm not a fan and not looking forward to the change, but maybe I'll feel differently after in-depth exposure. Right now it seems like it's different enough from 7 that all of my well-trained behaviors don't work right on 10.

Also nice that Bodhi is #1 on FOSSBYTES list of lightweight Linux distros:

#2 is Puppy, which is cool but seriously non-standard in so many ways.

I had to backtrack to see how many screens that was. Quite the panorama.

I've got 2GB RAM on my system, and have much better results with the 32-bit version. IMO, 2GB RAM isn't enough for any 64-bit OS.

In Topic: Upgrade procedure when new Ubuntu LTS comes out?

Maybe you are also new to the concept of NOT upgrading? 

 

But Jeff has done all this hard work!  Seriously, though, one reason to upgrade is that it appears (based on admittedly limited research) that older versions don't up updates to the latest application versions (e.g., LibreOffice). So the compelling feature for upgrading might be that.
