I'm from Brazil and new to Bodhi but not to Linux (or GNU/Linux). I've been using Linux sporadically since my childhood, but last year I decided to make my main drive. On my work machine (a macbook air) I just installed Bodhi and right now, as I type, I'm doing the configuration to fit my job's needs, which includes specific software that are only available for windowns/macOs/Debian distributions. That's why I choose Bodhi, for it being lightweight and ubuntu based. The distro is very different from what I'm used to, it is going to be a bit challenging, but worth it.
BTW (no, I don't use Arch haha), sorry for any grammar mistakes and lack of vocabulary. I don't work in IT, although it is one of my hobbies (still into girly stuff, it's hard to make time to everything)
Hi ellaparker, and welcome! Hope you will find Bodhi as satisfying as we have - we have it installed on almost all of our friends and family PCs, now. Yes, it is different, but in a good way! Many of their machines are ten years old, as is my netbook. This has saved us a lot of money for upgrading PCs over the years since 2011, and it has been fun! Ben
