well so far so good on my 2 thinkpads which i have run everyday. The dell i used a few times to check it since my wife has had no time to try to get into bodhi. and the r500 seems to work but it is slow.
So thanks you to you all who had more patience than i have to get me through this stuff. We are 100% Bodhi in the house and we are good for the next 4 yrs or a bit less. I really hated to leave bodhi and i really feel comfortable using Bodhi. Thanks!
