In Topic: Bodhi ranking

Bless you Jeff!  May you and yours prosper mightily.  

 

Just had a look at those DistroWatch rankings which do seem to be even more anomalous today than they were the last time I looked.

 

We are indeed at #40 in the list, but there are a goodly  number of worthy distributions even  further down - like Kubuntu at #49,  the ever-useful Knoppix at #56,  the perennially artistic Ubuntu Studio at #65, the backup-friendly Clonezilla at #70,  Valve's  SteamOS at #82,  FreeNAS at #86,  and bringing up the rear is Raspbian (with its many milliards of users)  at #100!

 

Raspbian teetering at the bottom of the top 100?  That says everything.

 

As you say Jeff, no meaning worth mentioning.  I'd speculate that all those zillions of known  RasPi  users just don't visit DistroWatch much since their own raspbian.org and raspberrypi.org do such a good job . . .

 

Aha . . . <lightbulb>

 

Maybe that  is why Bodhi is not getting that many clicks?  

The immaculate bodhilinux.com draws surfers away from DW?   ;)

 

Seriously impressive web presence.   So professional.

Around Bodhi 1.1 launch (iirc) Bodhi did briefly hit the top of Distrowatch!  I have the screenshot somewhere, but where?

 

Yes, it is a click-thing. 

And an established stable Bodhi/Moksha is prob'ly not as exciting or clickworthy as shiny new Bodhi 1 was back in the day.

 

Keep doing what you like to do, Jeff.   We love it!

Thanks for that, Sef.

We bought a bargain price Win8.0 box when they announced Win10, just so as to have the experience of installing Win10. 

I must be a masochist.

After a couple of days of downloads it eventually installed, rebooted, rebooted, rebooted  and we then wrestled with all of the above to dual-boot Bodhi.  <grumble>

@ Jayan Tashi  -  You have our sympathies! :)

 

Win10 was about as grim as we  feared.  Kept it on there for most of a year so we could watch it struggle to update itself and show it to the gullible who were planning to "upgrade" their Win boxen.  Then we'd show them Bodhi, with a selection of demo user accounts to quickly showcase the configurable nature of Moksha. 

 

The box has been wiped and as a reward it now has a new SSD with nothing but Bodhi installed. Goes llike a hose!

@ Sef

Thanks for those useful pointers, will be taking a look at "Rufus"

Nice work, Stefan, thanks to you and to Jeff for doing that.  Feels much better than the old one, and does the job for me.

Had to use :

sudo apt-get install screenshot-moksha

... since the Appcenter page trips up on :

W: The repository 'http://packages.bodhilinux.com/bodhi xenial Release' is not signed.

... this is also triggered by:

sudo apt-get update

But hey, this is still an alpha release!  

Do like the screenshot!      Ben
