Bodhi, a minimal Linux operating system based on Ubuntu and which has really low requirements, has reached version 3.0.0 Alpha.

The Bodhi Linux systems are known for their minimalistic approach, and the current release is no different. The most important aspect of this latest Alpha version of Bodhi is the fact that it’s based on Ubuntu 14.04, which is also under heavy development.

“As promised I've put together our first Bodhi Linux disc that is built on top of the upcoming Ubuntu 14.04 release. Keep in mind this is a very early image not intended for production machines. There will be issues,” reads the announcement from the developer.

Also, the E19 desktop environment has replaced the old E17, the possibility to manually change the profile of the theme selection at startup is no longer available, eConnman has replaced nm-applet, Pulseaudio has replaced Alsa, Matrilineare has replaced MaXo-Remix, and LightDM has replaced LXDM as the default display manager.

A complete list of changes can be found in the official announcement. Download Bodhi 3.0.0 Alpha right now from Softpedia.

Remember that this is a development version and it should NOT be installed on production machines. It is intended for testing purposes only.
