@Oblio
It has been tested. Actually, it doesn't look that bad... unless you are running Centos, see

Thanks for the link!  The benchmarks actually look incredibly promising!

 

I read some articles when these risks were first identified and it was fairly doom and gloom...this looks great!

Back in my gaming days I experienced a average of 17% performance increase in frame rates by switching from another OS to Bodhi...a lot less overhead, etc.  Bodhi for the win!

I wonder how the new kernel is going to perform however (due to Meltdown and Spectre).  Supposed to be some pretty heavy memory table changes from what I have read.

 

Time will tell!

cooler,

 

Crazy, as a hardware guy with 17 or so years of experience, I am humbled! 

 

Thank you for the lesson!

For me, I just love a completely "blank" desktop....image and nothing else....

 

Sorry you want desktop icons.  Guess that is why I am on this distro....my FS manges everything, and I don't use a desktop to hold my files.

 

You can do it in Bodhi...but ask around, others will help you.  I think icons are iBar driven or something similar.
