While I'd prefer Pardus, I've ended up with Open Suse on all my computers.  They do a pretty good job with KDE(2nd best only to Pardus in my opinion) and their rolling release (Tumbleweed) keeps very up to date with both kernel and KDE releases.

I just miss Pisi.  YAST2 has always been a pain in the neck for me, though apper is getting better. And Kaptan was so nice a way to set up configurations after install instead of having to set up lancelot the long way.

After I downloaded the turkish/english version I stumbled across a bit torrent link of it. 

http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/5282886/Pardus_2009.1_Anthropoides_virgo

Not many seeding it yet seems though.  Probably the direct download route is quicker if time is of high importance.

On a side note I upgraded all three of my systems with Pardus 2009 to 2009.1 with no problems aside from one machine needing to have the modified icons in the desktop folder relinked.  The other machines just have the standard icons so of course had no trouble.

When you install a GNU/Linux distribution, the first time you run the web browser (Firefox, Konqueror, ...), it opens the web page of that distro. I think that it would be interesting to also open the web page of Pardus from DistroWatch:

http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=pardus

Do you think that this is a good way to measure the increase of the number of users of Pardus2009?

I would be so grateful if someone talks about this proposal to the Turkish developers. Thanks!



I think Ladislav(The editor of Distrowatch) has in the past been against the idea of distros linking to the Distributions page on distrowatch.  Might be better to include  a link to it on a locally launched HTML information page.  Also I see a problem if the person hasn't yet configured their internet connection.  Neither a "page unavailable" nor even a successful rendering of distrowatch's page looks as good as a nicely crafted HTML page stored in /home/username

That's just my guess or opinion as a user of both Pardus and The Distrowatch website.

57% now They've been busy.   Especially nice to see all the KDE4 things moving along so fast.

I had PCLinuxOS2007 on my Laptop and happened to try to update it while traveling when they made their big upgrade to 2009.1

There were some problems with the update that may have been related to the unreliable wireless connection I was on at the time.  I decided while I waited for them to come out with a final CD release I'd try some other distros. I think Pardus was the second one I tried and everything worked so I've decided to stay with it.

I'd seen Pardus on Distrowatch and read some good reviews so I was intrigued. Also with the support of the Turkish government I think it will stick around and not fade away like some small distributions have.

Glad to say I'm happy with my first encounter with Pardus.  I installed it on my Laptop in place of PCLinuxOS which had been on there for almost 2 years.  I think I'll keep Pardus on at least as long.

PISI is very impressive and the package selection is amazing in being so up to date.

I have Pardus installed on a Compal Hel-80 and everything seems to work.  I bought it in the U.S. from powernotebooks.com(unsure if they ship outside the U.S.) and specifically ordered it without internal wireless so I could be certain wireless would work under linux(by adding a Netgear WG511T PCMCIA card).  I've used it with Pardus 2008.2 to play games and watch movies as well as the usual surfing etc.  I have never tested the video camera or the fingerprint reader as I have no real need of them, but I suspect they should work fine.  It is a somewhat older model now as I have had it for about 2 years.  Before Pardus 2008.2, it ran PCLinuxOS.
