Bodhi Linux development continues unstoppable and quite active, something I celebrate. The first beta of the next major version of this Ubuntu-based distribution has recently been released. Thus, those who want you can now enjoy Bodhi Linux 4 thanks to this beta.
In general, there are no drastic changes, although if you are new to the distribution it will catch your attention. its low rate of resources consumed as well as its design, something that does not detract from using few resources.
Bodhi Linux 4 will remain true to the philosophy of the distribution and will keep the 32-bit version as well as the Non-PAE version, something that is increasingly difficult to find among the most popular distributions and that Ubuntu will also make disappear soon.
Bodhi Linux 4 will have versions for older computers
Bodhi Linux 4 doesn't make big changes based on Ubuntu, but it does keep updating and improving your Moksha desktop, a desktop that is based on E17 and that is being polished to be more functional and with less problems than the main line of Enlightenment.
Among the "fixes" made in this first beta are better support for Qt / GTK3 + applications, a new selection of desktop themes, a better performance of the clipboard or a polished start menu that many users will appreciate.
Users who are using the Bodhi Linux 4 pre-release (which is not recommended), will be able to update the distribution with these commands:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade sudo apt-get remove places-moksha sudo apt-get install bodhi-desktop
After that it will be updated to the beta version of Bodhi Linux 4, but as we say, it is better to download the beta install image test it in a virtual machine since it is not a stable version of the distribution.
In any case, it seems that before the end of the year we will have a new light distribution, a distribution that is based on Ubuntu and that maintains its simplicity and beauty Do not you think?
