Bodhi Linux is an operating system based on two elements: <ul> <li>Minimalism</li> <li>The <a href="https://github.com/JeffHoogland/moksha" target="_blank">Moksha desktop</a></li> </ul> <h3>Minimalism</h3> We aim to strike a balance between (<em>a</em>) providing nothing but a command-line interface and (<em>b</em>) including everything plus the kitchen sink. So we provide you with a base system that is functional but not bloated. Bodhi's default application set includes: <ul> <li><a href="https://github.com/JeffHoogland/ePad">ePad</a> (text editor)</li> <li>PCManFM (file manager)</li> <li>ePhoto (image viewer)</li> <li><a href="http://www.midori-browser.org/">Midori</a> (web browser)</li> <li><a href="https://www.enlightenment.org/about-terminology" target="_blank">Terminology</a> (terminal emulator)</li> <li>eepDater (system updater)</li> </ul> We believe users are smart enough to choose their own applications, the best of which can be installed directly through our <a href="http://www.bodhilinux.com/a/">AppCenter</a> (or via our <strong>AppPack ISO</strong> for new installations - <em>click</em> <a href="http://www.bodhilinux.com/w/selecting-the-correct-iso-image/">here</a> for details). <h3><a href="http://mokshadesktop.org" target="_blank">Moksha Desktop</a></h3> Moksha ([ˈmɔkʃə] or \ˈmōkshə\) is from the Sanskrit word मोक्ष for "emancipation, liberation, or release." We've made Moksha to be fast, flexible, and as fancy as you want it to be. <a href="http://www.bodhilinux.com/trial/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/Selection_748.png"><img class=" size-medium wp-image-1759 aligncenter" src="http://www.bodhilinux.com/trial/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/Selection_748-620x312.png" alt="What is Bodhi Linux? Check out the Moksha Desktop" width="620" height="312" /></a> Unlike many modern Linux desktops which go out of the way to hide configuration options from the end user, Moksha exposes all, allowing you to tinker to your heart's content. Beyond the configuration options, you can also customize your desktop with a selection of themes from our <a href="http://www.bodhilinux.com/softwaregroup/themes/">AppCenter</a>. The Moksha desktop is our continuation of the <a href="https://www.enlightenment.org/about-enlightenment">Enlightenment</a> environment. Moksha improves upon bug fixes and features from later Enlightenment releases while it also removes the half-finished and/or broken things <abbr title="E17: Enlightenment 17">E17</abbr> contained. You can learn more about the inception of Moksha <a href="http://www.bodhilinux.com/2015/04/28/introducing-the-moksha-desktop/">here</a>. Bodhi's core is built on top of the <a href="http://ubuntu.com">Ubuntu</a> operating system. To learn more about Bodhi's relationship with Ubuntu check out our <a href="http://www.bodhilinux.com/w/release-cycle/">release cycle</a>. If you are psyched (or even curious) about Bodhi Linux and want to test run it as a "Live" USB/CD or just plain install it, <em>click </em><a href="http://www.bodhilinux.com/w/system-requirements/"><strong>here</strong></a> for more information about minimum system requirements.
