It has been close to six months since our last Bodhi Linux release – far too long! This is just our normal update release – meaning if you are already a Bodhi user and have been running your system updates then you already have all these additions running on your system!
To cut right to the chase – you can find direct downloads of the ISO images on Source Forge here. You can obtain torrent downloads for the ISO images later today.
Before I talk about the small details of this release, I’d like to remind folks that Bodhi is moving to a three times/year update cycle as opposed to the previous four times/year updates we’d been doing. Since E17 stabilized we have less of a reason to power out ISO images as often. Expect new releases in January/June/September from now on.
Also – can you believe it is almost the end of 2013 already? That means Bodhi 3.0.0 is less than twelve months away! It will be out sometime in the summer after Ubuntu 14.04 releases.
Back to the here and now – our 2.4.0 release features three ISO images to install from:
- 32bit featuring a current PAE enabled kernel
- 32bit featuring a non-PAE kernel with older hardware support
- 64bit featuring a current kernel
Linux doesn’t lie, any more than gravity lies, or geology lies, or atmosphere
lies. Like those other natural things, Linux has no guile, no agenda beyond
supporting the entirety of use-space. In rough words, there’s no bullshit about
it, and that’s one reason it gets used. Let me explain.

I remember my first colocated server rather fondly. It was a 1U Supermicro that had
been decommissioned from my employer after a few years’ service. Although it was too
old and slow for my company, the 800MHz CPU, 1GB RAM and 36GB SCSI storage was
perfect for my needs back in 2005. A friend was kind enough to allow me to colocate
the server at his facility for free. more>>
