When is the release date?
No idea. I live strictly by "its ready when its ready" philosophy for the software I work on. Setting strict release dates causes buggy software to be marked as "stable". Our targeted release month is July - but who knows it could be ready before then.
What is the main difference between 2.0.0 and 1.x.y?
The Ubuntu base is the main difference. Our 1.x.y series is based on Ubuntu 10.04, while 2.0.0 is built on top of 12.04
Can I upgrade my Bodhi Linux 1.x.y install to Bodhi 2.0.0?
No. A full reinstall will be required.
Will there be 64bit support?
What are the minimum system requirements?
The minimum system requirements will be about the same as Bodhi 1.x.y. Currently they are looking like:
2gig of hard drive space
Will it be faster than Bodhi 1.x.y?
Could be. It will not be slower to say the least.
How big will the disc download be?
Since we do not have a final stable version as of yet I cannot say for sure. Expect it to be under 500mb though.
Can I upgrade from 2.0.0 pre-release to the final 2.0.0 version?
I think that about covers all the common questions I have gotten. If you have another question regarding this release feel free to drop a comment below.
