This is my feed-back so far as a wannabe technical guy. I am trying to keep an open mind because I am definitely biased towards Moksha, probably because I have now installed it dozens of times over and over on both VMs and on older laptops.
I have been running Bodhi 6.0 e24 and Bodhi 6.0 Mohsha side by side in two VMs (both VMs configured exactly the same). I have been using them the same way I would use my daily driver.
Performance wise I don't discern any difference except that FireFox seems to take a bit longer to load on e24. Keep in mind this is on a VM which typically is a bit slower than bare metal so I see how things run on my old 2 core 3Gib Ram MacBook.
Personally I like Maksha better than e24 because I feel like it is more customizable but that could be just lack of familiarity with e24. Also I don't care about tiling or Rage etc. I rather have e17/Moksha with all the bug fixes than the e24 with the new bells and whistles and new bugs. I do get a GPU error with e24 but I think that is a VM issue. The other annoying thing with e24 is no network manager loading by default - it is easy enough to fix but it would be nice just to have like I am used to with Moksha. Last I don't understand the PolicyKit Authenication Agent failure I get with e24.
That said e24 once installed does run OK. I found some nice themes. And because E does not really need a start button or even a panel (shelf) I am experimenting with an ultra clean desktop.
Same as majpooper. I discovered BL with Moksha Desktop and experienced E17 (now e24) later. I had a "coup de coeur" for Moksha and adopted it on 32 and 64 bit versions. This favorite is lasting on newer versions.
Hello, Will there be an alpha version followed by some betas and RC isos before the final one? Please regard this post as a simple question. It is not a symptom of impatience.
Robert (Ylee) has been working on upcoming release. I sorta feel it will be a final release as pre-alpha was without any serious glitches due your positive feedback. The main issue he needs to solve is a signed repository. He is a perfectionist so it is not easy to persuade him to release semi-working solutions. In the meantime I have some time for little corrections to moksha code or language translations. I have never worked harder than on Bl 5.1 and BL 6.0 so I am in a relaxing mode these days waiting for Robert's final work. Also my family needs me. I spent too much time with this project. I need to collect some ideas and energy for making another video "teaser" on YT for BL 6 promo. Unfortunately Bodhi is a big load for just 2 dev guys...
EDIT: according ylee's yesterdays info he is not fully OK with his health. "Robert, I beg your pardon if I revealed your privacy info..."
Over the years I have noticed we have some older users who claim the battery info (percent and remaining time) is sorta tiny when the battery gadget is placed on the shelf. For this purpose I added a little new feature: popup on mouse click. Text is bigger and better for visibility. Popup delay is 5 secs then disappears. Let's hope it will be useful.
Today I added battery alert by default. I chose 5 mins or 5 percent. I have no idea why it was switched off. Also some cosmetics to the theme selector. I have nothing against enlightenment, but "Welcome to enlightenment" in Moksha desktop sounds non-PRO, lol
Same here nothing against E after all Moksha is based on e17 but just prefer Moksha.
Anyway on another BL6.0 pre-alpha item: installed on my old MacBook I can not reboot or poweroff either via the system power icon choices or via terminal commands - the only way is to manually hold down the power button.
I get a series of "Failed to "unmount /oldroot:" errors and followed by "reboot: Power Down" and then screen freeze. Manually powering down works and boots up fine (with the usual suspects in terms of output)there seems to be no ill effects.
Researching it really does not yield anything useful. I checked etc/fstab . . . nothing unusual there.
I may try down grade from the 5.4 to the 4.15 kernel series to see if it is a kernel issue.
