Title
Selecting the Correct ISO Image
Content
<h3>Overview</h3> This article describes the difference between the four available ISO images to help you decide which one is best suited for your needs. Bodhi Linux traditionally offered three different ISO images in each release. With Release [library term="version"] there is now another, ISO (Hwe) image: <ul> <li><a href="#Standard">Standard</a></li> <li><a href="#HWE">HWE</a> (aka Hardware Enablement)</li> <li><a href="#Legacy_32-bit_only">Legacy (32-bit only)</a></li> <li><a href="#AppPack">AppPack</a></li> </ul> If you haven't already, do take a look at the information on Bodhi Linux [library term="version"] <a href="https://www.bodhilinux.com/w/system-requirements/"><em>System Requirements</em></a>. <h3>Standard</h3> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><strong>Link</strong>: <a href="https://www.bodhilinux.com/download/">Download</a></p> Bodhi Linux <strong><em>Standard</em></strong>. This is the platform standard for desktop and workstation computers created in the last decade. If your processor is capable of running a 64-bit operating system, you should be using this release. Bodh Linux <em>Standard</em> [library term="version"] release features a [library term="version-kernel"] kernel version. <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><strong>NOTE</strong>: The <em>Standard</em> release does not push any new kernel updates post-installation. If you want to receive regular kernel updates (kernel version [library term="version-kernel-hwe"]) opt for the <a href="#HWE">HWE</a> install.  Alternatively, you can simply add the HWE kernel (and receive regular kernel updates) to the <em>Standard</em> release post-installation. For more details see the wiki article on <a href="https://www.bodhilinux.com/w/administrative-task-faqs/#How_do_I_upgrade_from_Bodhi_Standard_to_HWE">How to add HWE to a <em>Standard</em> Installation</a>.</p> The Bodhi Linux <em>Standard</em> release features a minimalist base install allowing the user to add exactly what they want with no extra frills by default. The current [library term="version"] default application set for the standard release is: <ul> <li><a href="https://www.enlightenment.org/about-terminology">Terminology</a> Terminal Emulator</li> <li><a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNOME_Web">Epiphany</a> Web Browser</li> <li><a href="https://www.bodhilinux.com/w/bodhi-linux-how-to/pcmanfm-file-manager/">PCManFM</a> File Manager</li> <li><a href="https://www.bodhilinux.com/a/leafpad/">Leafpad</a> Text Editor</li> <li><a href="https://www.bodhilinux.com/a/ephoto/">ePhoto</a> Image Viewer</li> <li><a href="https://www.bodhilinux.com/a/epdfview/">ePDFView</a> (PDF Viewer)</li> <li><a href="https://www.bodhilinux.com/w/synaptic-package-manager/">Synaptic Package Manager</a></li> </ul> <h3>HWE</h3> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><strong>Link</strong>: <a href="https://www.bodhilinux.com/download/">Download</a></p> Bodhi Linux <strong><em>HWE</em></strong> (aka <em>Hardware Enablement</em>) is built on top of <a href="#Standard"><em>Standard</em></a> (for desktop and workstation computers created in the last decade) and is all about catching up with the newest hardware technologies. If your processor is capable of running a 64-bit operating system, and you want to receive further kernel updates and newer hardware support, you should be using this release. Bodh Linux <em>HWE</em> [library term="version"] release features a [library term="version-kernel-hwe"] kernel version. <h3>Legacy (32-bit only)</h3> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><strong>Link</strong>: <a href="https://www.bodhilinux.com/download/">Download</a></p> Bodhi Linux <em><strong>Legacy</strong>. </em> This is our 32-bit Non-PAE release of Bodhi Linux. The Legacy [library term="version"] image utilizes an older Linux kernel that is optimized for old (15+ years old) hardware, including Non-PAE processors such as Pentium M, Pentium Pro, Celeron, in addition to newer processors with the <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Physical_Address_Extension">PAE extension</a> If your computer is 32-bit (ie: not 64-bit compatible) and has either a non-PAE/PAE processor then this is the right image for you! Bodh Linux <em>Legacy</em> [library term="version"] release features a [library term="version-kernel-legacy"] kernel version. <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><strong>NOTE</strong>: The Legacy release does not push any new kernel updates post-installation.</p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;">Is your PC only just meting the <a href="https://www.bodhilinux.com/w/system-requirements/">minimal System Requirements</a>? If so, take a look at the <a href="https://www.bodhilinux.com/w/minimum-specification-hardware-faqs/">Minimal Spec FAQ</a>, you will find answers to questions, comments on ultra-low memory situations and details on successful installs against minimal hardware spec'd PC's.</p> <h3>AppPack</h3> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><strong>Link</strong>: <a href="https://www.bodhilinux.com/download/">Download</a></p> Bodhi Linux <strong><em>AppPack</em></strong> (built on top of <a href="#Standard"><em>Standard</em></a>), comes with a variety of additional themes, applications when compared to Standard, these are listed below. Bodh Linux AppPack [library term="version"] release features a [library term="version-kernel"] kernel version. <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><strong>NOTE</strong>: The AppPack release does not push any new kernel updates post-installation. If you want to receive regular kernel updates (kernel version [library term="version-kernel-hwe"]) opt for the <a href="#HWE">HWE</a> install.</p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;">Alternatively, you can add HWE kernel updates to the <em>AppPack</em> release post-installation.
