I have managed to get 4.0 alpha AND 4.0 beta on separate USB sticks, to "try before you buy" or to test drive, pretending to be a newbie (not a complete newbie) in the process; in other words, as someone planning to do a complete wipe of MS from a laptop.
So please take this as constructive criticism, and the questions come from the newbie mentioned above. A friend(s) told him to try Bodhi out, but he is hesitant about "complete wipe" or as his friend likes to tell him, to nuke all the stuff that came with the gear. But if his friend managed it, and is quite happy playing with his new toy (some iphone or other); I figure I can do it as well.
I am greeted with the Quick Start that tells him to run eepdater after setting esudo? (getting confused- what password? Is it bodhi? Was there a password somewhere?
But the quick start proceeds to describe all about getting software and applications after the big check mark appears, indicating the update/reload/eepdate concluded successfully.
This is the 32bit version, but I don't think the Win7 Dell latitude E6400 is a UEFI laptop, although the familiar BIOS setup is GUI-fied now instead of the normal plain text on blue-tinted screens a la DOS. (I did not have to choose a legacy mode if that helps.)
How can I proceed to get Thunar or PCmanFM? I must be the only one toying with live sessions; everybody else with install. The choices for distros with e are rather few, and I want to make sure that Bodhi is a cut above the rest, if I had that password.
