In Topic: Can Bodhi decently revive 15 years old computers?

06 August 2017 - 08:14 AM

By 2003 most consumer machines were already Windows XP compatible. The gap between 1995 and 2002 is huge imho, because most people in 1995 were without the internet and running at most on Windows 3.1. If machines are that old, I would discourage one from wasting Bodhi Linux on those 20th century devices. By 2002 Windows 98 was quite common, it may not suffice going online watching Youtube with those machines, but they would at least be 586 somewhat. I don't think any machine newer than 2003 is even a Pentium 586, iirc by 2004 there was already a laptop trend and at least 1Gb RAM with a 32bit processor that can decently run Bodhi Legacy 32 bit version.


From 2005-2008 onwards people were quite disillusioned with "faster is better", so what they did was shrinking the 32bit into Intel Atom netbooks, etc. In summary, most devices from 2002 till present day that have at least a 32 bit or even 64 bit processor are perhaps worthy a try running Bodhi Linux. Just my personal opinion. :P

Hello and welcome. Hope the latest Bodhi 4.2.0 interests you. Glad knowing that Mr. Bihar Ram Nath Kovind has now started His new term as President of India. The developed world sends Him warm regards. :)

In Topic: An easy way to install Google Earth

Google is often more sane when the Earth is round instead of the rectangular flattened work of art known as a Map. Have always loved spinning the globe and making everybody dizzy, hee. :D

In Topic: Please support Bodhi Linux

19 July 2017 - 04:08 AM

i hated to say this in he original post but if everyone could give $5-10 a yr per computer they run Bodhi on it would help significantly.


a distro of love re: the work people put into it.

Then don't say it, type it then. ;) Shall we start together a crowd fundraiser or some similar alternative where anyone that runs Bodhi has the option of donating $5 to $10 a year per computer that they run Bodhi Linux on it? One way we can make this happen in the USA is via GoFundMe, which once had the option of pledging donation dollars with a hyperlink that redirects here. The Bodhi Linux official Facebook page offers a Send Message button, it is not too difficult customising it adding a button that is a donation feature.


Even though I could do it, on one hand I have gone cashless and I try not to handle monetary transactions, besides GoFundMe or even Wepay supports audiences in specific countries, Jeff has to be the one owning your wish, not us forumers. I am supportive of your idea.
