"Where the Bodhi Linux is a true one-of a kind is because of the window manager feature of Enlightment. The end result is that what comes onto the desktop is what the user wants as he remains the decision maker right from the default theme, system layout to the applications that will sit on the computing desk. That is the reason only a skeleton of pre-installs appear on the Bodi system-Midori, Leafpad, Synaptic, PCManFM etc. The Bodhi Software center can be used as het ode to choose and install any other application critical to your needs. Bodhi is simply enlightening in several methods- one it lightens the entire desktop, you simply remove all that you never use and retain the parts that you use constantly.

"Bodhi Linux scores for being the light weight but definitely not a push over under the heavy distros from LXDE to XFCE. The key is that the Bodhi is an Ubuntu 10.04 based project that spirals on the Enlightment Desktop. The LXDE services as the terminal and the login system manager and comes with self-packaged .bod. and ensures it is compatible with all required systems."
