Thanks, I didn't know that. Just goes to show how Linux works quietly away in the background
while windows gets all the publicity.
The BBC did get some criticism at the launch of iPlayer as non-windows users seemed to have been
left out in the cold at the time.

The BBC have a problem even admitting the existence of Linux. News stories about  viruses, trojans,
botnets etc., usually fail to state the sole operating system affected. They are in the same "Windows mindset"
as most of the general public.
To be fair, this has begun to change of late as this Ubuntu article shows.

Try watching Click Online, the BBC's digital tech feature on News 24. See the presenter mention the "L" word through gritted teeth... Grin

There may be minor differences between XP Pro and XP Home regarding networking.
I'm not sure. I thought I'd seen this somewhere?

Hi atolboo,

Hope this is what you want.

I used Windows XP Pro SP3. I don't have a copy of XP Home.

He's taken on Chris Smart as editor. So, yeah he's not actually retired, he's just taking a back seat.

@ PhiX
Thanks for the link. Very interesting. I work for the Ministry of Defence here in the UK. IT services are contracted out. The contractor supplies Microsoft products. The contract was recently renewed for the next 5 years. I haven't a clue if any IT companies who tendered for the contract offered UNIX or Linux alternatives.

@ azra
The fact that Pardus is a national project gives me confidence to continue using it. Not much chance of it fading away through lack of interest or users.

@ Mhmrcs
Yeah, I was thinking along the lines of Kiwi- a few modifications to an already existing distro. Whereas Pardus is a distro in it's own right, not just a Turkish Ubuntu.
7  General / As seen on the internet / Re: Adıyaman University to use GNU/Linux on: November 24, 2008, 18:49:20 PM
Was Pardus chosen above other distros because it is Turkish in origin? I'm thinking along the lines of national pride as well as Turkish being the default language. I've noticed other nations developing their own, often Ubuntu based, distros.

This isn't a criticism. Perhaps this is one way linux will develope in the future.

Ladislav has retired from writing Distrowatch, so it will be interesting what editorial line is taken in the future. There have been criticisms in the past regarding the coverage of distros. The Ubuntu family seemed to do rather well, Gentoo did not etc.

Personally, I would not be using Pardus had I not found it via Distrowatch.

I don't go back THAT far!

Although I do remember black and white television...




10  General / The Pub / Re: What are you listening to? on: November 08, 2008, 12:12:43 PM
I generally listen to Vintage FM or Finetune player but at the moment I've got BBC Radio 2 playing on my good old analogue radio.

@azra,

I'm in Andover, just up the road from Winchester.
12  General / Introduce yourself / Re: Hi From Uk on: November 02, 2008, 19:39:56 PM
Thanks for the welcome.

@Mhmrcs

I wonder just how many Linux users there are here in the UK? I know of no one personally who is a linux user, apart from my mother and brother, both of whom I "converted". All of my friends, workmates etc., think computer = windows. Someone must be buying those Linux magazines I see on the shelves in WH Smiths...
13  General / General topics / Re: How did you hear about Pardus? on: November 02, 2008, 19:14:08 PM
I'm using Tepecik-03 as a desktop background as it's more easy on the eye, even if I don't have a clue what it is... Huh?
14  General / General topics / Re: How did you hear about Pardus? on: November 01, 2008, 18:48:46 PM
Hi all,

I found Pardus via Distrowatch. I had been using Ubuntu 7.04 and was looking to Debian rather than upgrading to Ubuntu 8.04. But as Debian Lenny is still not ready, I tried Pardus. Been using it for about a month. Up until now, I was a Gnome fan but Pardus is easily the best KDE distro. The only change I've made is to the desktop background. Everything else is standard.

Alan.

My name is Alan. I live in  the county of Hampshire in England.  I've been using linux for about 3 years, Linspire at first, then Ubuntu. I have Pardus on my main pc and XP/Ubuntu/Debian on another and currently nothing on a third. I hasten to add, they're all pretty basic and one was given to me free of charge.
