    ...DistroWatch slams!

    ...It is, in my opinion, mostly glitter and little substance.

    An even harsher review, but it was of the 0.15 pre-release:

    Hopefully, it's a lot better now.

    the screenshots look great btw
    Aside from Elive, there haven't been any well built maintained e17 distros. Elive did not have a 64 bit version from what I remember either. Macpups a close secound for being maintained but I have never had much luck with Macpup, and again, no 64 bit version last time I checked.

    I used to use OzOS all the time. Followed that with Moon OS for my e17 kicks. I think Moon got an update not long ago, but even then it was a rather long time coming.

    Lord what was the other one... ZenBuntu? Something like that, that fizzled quickly too from what I remember.

    A maintained long standing e17 distro with a 64 bit version hasn't been done well before.

    Ill give this a go, and have another nosey at Moon OS while I am at it

    Edit :

    Moon OS has gone Gnome, looks awesome as all Moon OS incarnations do, but it aint e17.

    The Distrowatch review is also for the last release, it's not up to date. Not to mention that Bodhi is still in release candidate status, not final. They've made a lot of changes in the last month, almost all for the good (I don't agree with dropping Firefox for Midori).

    Want that extra bloat by default go use Ubuntu/Linux Mint/Pinguy OS.

    It still has bloat - 400MB worth - except you don't get anything for that bloat, like applications available to use, at least according to the review.

    So, I guess it's all about having a minimalistic starting point, right? I get the feeling that Bodhi isn't such a great distro for folks for whom so-called "bloat" is a non-issue.

    Or for folks who don't particularly care for E17. I use E17 sometimes -- it's nice, but I'm not crazy about it.

    Anyway, as someone else pointed out, it's cool that in Linux there's something for everyone...

    I don't bother too much with reviews, why should someone else's point of view about something be mine... go out there and try it... you will be surprised...
