I'm running 5.1.0 on both my computers. 5.0 was the first version I managed to get working, although I tried in 3.0 and 4.0. I still have a 32-bit 3.0 disk around here from some magazine. I was excited about Bodhi from the time I learned of it, as I had used E17 on MacPup 5.27 and 5.50. While I am a member of the mintCast podcast crew, I've moved Bodhi up into a virtual tie with Mint on my systems.
Desktop: home-assembled, Gigabyte motherboard, i3 with Intel graphics, 16 Gb RAM, DVD drive, 256 Gb SSD (soon to be upgraded) Laptop: System76 Kudu 3, i7 with Intel graphics, 16 Gb RAM, DVD drive, 256 Gb SSD (also soon to be upgraded)
I have 3 RPis (2B+, 3B and 4B) but don't run much of anything on them at present, people keep giving me Pis (I had an original Pi and gave it to a high school student). I also have a System76 Galago Pro 2, but I'm selling that in the next week or so (which is how I'm upgrading my SSDs).
Every time I hear the word "Progress" my fur bristles!

I'm running Bodhi 4.5.0 on a Dell Inspiron Mini notebook. I'm considering downgrading, however, as software bloat-creep long ago rendered the machine incapable of apt-get update without timing out. Not that these repos are still being maintained, but it would be nice to have at least the last-available security updates.
I may be the only person in the world running Bodhi 1.4 on a Google Nexus 7 (2012) tablet. It has its issues, but it still works for the meager tasks I set it to. I am considering an "upgrade" to PostmarketOS simply because pmOS is actively maintained.
I'm running 5.1 on both a ACER Cloudbook and a Dell optiplex. Recently added a dual-boot W*&%# and Bodhi 5.1 on an HP laptop that both my wife and I can use as a backup. Not very interesting, I know. I always update to the latest because, well, why not?

I'm using 5.1 32 bits legacy on the familial eeepc and the standard 5.1 version on my 2nd PC. I'm using Manjaro for the moment on the main machine. If it crashes i'll be back on Mx Linux. Nvidia drivers have crashed my main machine on Bodhi.
I'm using 4.5, I need the NVIDIA legacy driver 304 for my on-board graphics (6150se, a special case, just won't work with open-source drivers).
The latest kernel that will let you install this driver is 4.4, so I'm limited to Ubuntu-16(LTS) and derivatives. It's supported until April, when I will either have to upgrade to Bodhi 5, and install kernel 4.4, or get a new video card. Which I'm reluctant to do, as the machine is 12 years old.
1) 8 to 10 year old MacBook (back story: a friend actually was going throw it away - literally - I cleaned it up, got all the stupid stickers off of it and got it running. I tried to give it back but my buddy had already purchased a huge Mac something or others for God only knows how much $$$$ and told me to keep it.)
2.) 4 or 5 year old Lenovo T430 quite powerful with an i7 8Gib RAM (created what I called FrankenBodhi in that I installed BL 5.1 and then went and removed Moksha, Epiphany, Terminology and PCmanFM and replaced them with Cinnamon, Firefox, gnome-terminal and nemo. I love that the foundation of the system is a light no frills Bodhi Standard OS but easily supports a rather heavy DE such as Cinnamon. It is still very fast although I would never recommend this approach on older resource challenged systems)
3.) 10 year old HP dm1 netbook (older couple just wants to do email, on-line banking/shopping, keep some pics and occasionally read or write a Word doc - this is a travel computer not their daily driver PC. I set everything they do up on the desktop like they had before on Windows 7 - I am not sure if this system could be upgraded to Windows 10 but I don't do Windows and have no clue except Windows 7 is no longer supported hence the linux install. Anyway it now runs quite nicely better than it has in years.)
EDIT: Please do not take this as donate shamming I just would encourage everyone to to think about how they benefit from the work these guys do and how occasionally donating a few bucks helps us all especially considering how cheap we get off compare to our family and friends who pay big time for the privilege of being abused by Apple and Microsoft. Bodhi is a great OS and to keep it maintained we all need to help out a little. OK I will get down off my soap box.
