Great to read you had a good harvest.
We had a good harvest too, not much, we have a small garden.
This year we have beets, parsnip, turnip, spinash, vigs, raspberries, strawberries, prunes, tomatoes (3 different kinds), courgette, cucumber and herbs: sage, oregano, mint (5 kinds), thyme, lemon balm etc...
Lots of peppers jalapegnos and habaneros, we make our own sambal and pica (habanero peppers with unions in vinegar).
Never started the Windows 10 it came with (big privacy and security leak!). Booted straight into the BIOS (FN + F2), changed the settings to boot from USB, disabled all intel settings, rebooted, pressed F12 to boot from USB, repartioned and installed Bodhi. So far everthing works out of the box. I use full hd encryption and firewall.
My old Dell E4300 is dying. The power supply and battery are shutting down sometimes.
So I bought a Lenovo Ideapad 110S-11IBR. You have to adjust the BIOS settings to boot to usb drive and disable some features as secure boot etc. Bodhi runs fine, snappy... typing this item on the Ideapad. For gaming this notebook is a no go and the harddisk is just 32GB something to consider. But for programming, light design work and video editing, browsing, playing minetest or Wesnoth it is fast enough.
I work for a company that builds and monitors installations for water transport and refinement.
The IT company that manages our network wanted to throw away 6 MSI systems (1GB memory, Atom 230 processor) we use to give courses in our telemetry software, to old for a update to Windows 10. I've persuade my manager and installed Bodhi! My colleages where suprised
Using the latest kernel is a choice but if you want something bleeding edge I think why not use Debian unstable or something like Arch. The kernel that comes with Bodhi 4.1.0 is just fine and stable. Moksha works fine on the systems here, my own laptop (Dell), my wifes laptop (Dell) and a Sharkoon game system with Steam I've build for my son with a Asus motherboard, 16GB Corsair mem and 2GB Ati graphics card (4800 series), 240G SSD hd and 1T hd.
