Distrowatch search for netbooks category not showing Bodhi in list of suitable distros

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to flag, that when doing a search on Distrowatch, and choosing the category: for Netbooks, 

Bodhi does not come up in the proposed results. 

 

Given that it has pretty modest system requirements, that it has a non-pae version, and it seems to works well on netbooks, perhaps you guys would like to have them fix that.

Distrowatch search today, and still no BODHI. 

parameters: linux-based, for netbooks, active. 

 

(but bodhi does show up if you change netbooks to old hardware - the problem is, old hardware category does not include drivers for things like on-board wifi chipsets, power-saving management, and so on)

 

is this intentional, to avoid the hardware support headaches of laptops and netbooks?

How was it fixed?

I emailed Jesse Smith on the contact page asking him to add Netbooks as a category for us. He got back to me in 1 hour saying he would change it, and voila, there it is!  :)
