    the Bodhi Linux team has come up with a 'bloated' version of Bodhi Linux.

    Bodhi Linux comes with only 4 apps pre-installed: Midori web browser, Leafpad text editor, Synaptic and the Terminal.
    Bloathi has a lot more as you can see below.

    i personally like to only have the bare minimum installed so i can add what i need instead of removing apps and stuff that i will never use.
    but some people like to have a good selection of apps to start with.

    whatever flavor you use Bodhi is powered by the awesome E17 Enlightnment windows/desktop manager.
    it is beautiful as well as mean and lean. :thumb:

    Bloathi includes these apps:

    Envision
    GEdit (Replaces Leafpad)
    Jockey-GTK (Maybe better known as "Hardware Drivers")
    LXKeyMap (Keyboard Layout Switcher)
    LXRandr (Monitor Settings)
    XScreensaver
    Sun Java 6 (JRE and plugin)
    Gnome System Monitor
    Gnome System Manager
    Qalculate
    Inkscape
    LibreOffice
    Pinta
    Simple Scan
    Firefox
    Pidgin
    Thunderbird
    Transmission
    DeaDBeeF
    VLC
    Xfburn
    Adobe Acrobat Reader
    ubuntu-restricted-extras
    adobe-flashplugin
    bodhi-filesharing
    bodhi-printing

    Isn't Bodhi supposed to be minimalistic Ubuntu?
    Therefore maximalistic Bodhi is maximalistic minimalistic Ubuntu?
    Therefore Ubuntu? U -a = B - > U = B + a; B + a = Bl -> Bl = U.

    Actually, it is just that
    one of the Bodhi forum members, Timmy, has put together a remaster of the latest Bodhi ISO image that he has cleverly called "Bloathi Linux"

    well,

    they could bloat Bodhi to the size of Ubuntu and still, the big difference between Bodhi and Ubuntu would be that Bodhi uses E17 Enlightenment as its windows/desktop manager instead of, what is it now?: Gnome, Unity or HUD? ;)

    So why not just install E17 in Ubuntu?

    because i don't want the bloat of Ubuntu :)

    and having it pre-installed in a distro such as Bodhi is easier for a newbie like me than trying to figure out all that stuff in Ubuntu.

    2-3 different music/media players, 2-3 different text editors, 2-3 different browsers etc.
    and even when there's only 1 app provided for a particular task, it does not mean i like that app.
    and like i said, i'd rather install stuff i need than remove stuff i don't need or want.


    of course, your mileage may vary ;)

    I think there's just gedit and Firefox by default in Ubuntu. I don't know about media. I know there is Banshee and maybe Totem in 11.10. I could be mistaken because I upgraded from 11.04 and didn't do a fresh install. So software excluded in 11.10 but present in my set-up would remain through the upgrade.

    Edit: forgot all about vi and emacs as text editors !!!

    taking Bodhi own 'bloated' version; Bloathi, for example:
    i just counted about 17-18 programs in there that i would remove.

    which makes me glad about a 'bare naked' distro, such as Bodhi.

    i was happy to use that the first few days to get sorted out but i eventually figured out how to use Synaptic.
    there is also a apt-get command but i like synaptic better because of the GUI

    i learned to create my first shortcut yesterday, so i'm still learning as i go :)
