    Professional bickering does not mean we cannot enjoy ourselves. After all, we're all in this together, we few, we happy few, we band of penguins. Or Tuxpeople, if you prefer. To this end, I wanted to interview the project manager for the Bodhi Linux operating system. Today, we have Jeff Hoogland as our guest, and he will tell us more about his work, his passion, his community, and a few other things besides. After me.

    Mrk,

    To be fair the Bodhi Linux project gives users two options: they can install a full-blown desktop configured ready to run and they can install a minimal desktop and build it exactly the way they want.

    Offering users a choice is a sound approach.

    This one used to be the Linux distro in which i really noticed a difference in terms of speed of getting things done (using the browser, an office program, etc.). I would just install it, go to bodhi app store and install only the programs i really needed and then create shortcuts to the dock. Then i would just logon, use the programs, and logoff. Never messed around too much with it the OS itself. It was great for my simple needs. I haven't used any linux distro for everyday use for quite some years now.
