Another Ubuntu release, another opportunity to try it out. It is something of a 6 monthly twitch for me. I like the things Ubuntu does and it's community and so every 6 months I get an itch to try it again. yesterdays release, I downloaded the ISO, burnt it, booted the live CD and thought good but not worth installing.
It is something of a revelation to me. I always Distro hop, but I thought is it worth changing distro to have to reconfigure when I have been using Pardus flawlessly since January. For a change Pardus has felt like home and something I am comfortable with. Unity is good I applaud the effort and hard work that has gone into it but just couldn't force myself to double click that install icon!
All in all it has taken me 2 years to find a comfortable distro and finally ( and without realizing it) Pardus has become it so fluidly!
Has anyone else taken a long time to find "their" distro? Has anyone given Ubuntu 11.04 a try and what are your thoughts?

I think this could be a great idea, coupled with a push in other forums and presence on the web might encourage new users to give it a go. Ubuntu has a handy guide to basic setup and customization, so too can pardus. Plus I think ubuntu and the way it announces development is the best thing behind it. I love to read the thoughts and follow release developments ( Unity has it's detractors and equally its fans) and the fact you can see how releases are shaping up. OMGubuntu is great for this so maybe a OMGPardus could be good. Similar concepts like click here to install. And one more note perhaps Pardus developers could lead the way in creating a unique KDE experience unlike any other distro? As lets be honest there is little to tell one KDE distro from the other apart from package management and slight usage differences and tweaks.

There aren't many KDE distros that do anything different. The only ones that do are Pardus, OpenSUSE and Mandriva. They are the  only ones that have something extra all the others are a standard oxygen KDE desktop with a brand name. They don't change the theme(or the desktop background) , or provide anything that makes it different. There aren't many good KDE distro spins out there but am pleased to say Pardus is one that is doing things from scratch with fresh ideas and a different take on things from the others. So it's far from Niche it just needs some more advertising to get it up that Distrowatch list!

@lisa Cheers for the warm welcome!

You get most information about Pardus here:

But its in Turkish. I hope they will create a English version of it in future.

I guess google translate would be quite useful for this. But hopefully future wise, they will
have a more permanent english language version!

I've used a fair few. Mandriva has been the best distro to keep me hooked on linux and stop me from going back to windows. However I found that I liked ubuntu because there is a lot of development discussion in the community that makes you feel a part of something going forward, that is growing and that you are watching it blossom and mature. But I loved KDE and Gnome I find quite bland looking in comparison. So i went back to mandriva as the only stable decent KDE distro I knew and loved. But unfortunately there is no regular community updates ( for example OMG ubuntu is great to whet your appetite on things to come in ubuntu) for the development side of things. So i read great things in reviews aout Pardus and said hey lets give it a go. And its brilliant, functional like PClinuxOS but a lot sleeker and looks far more integrated with some beautiful tweaks! I just hope that the developers of Pardus will be like Ubuntu with getting the users appetites whetted by releasing tid bits of onfo on what Pardus is doing to push the distro forward. lol my two cents! Hats off to the developers there is great stuff going on in Pardus.

Good day,
Dave from the uk. I hope to eventually become of some use around these
forums. I am new to Pardus and believe this to be the best KDE distro since
I tried Mandriva 2010. I don't wanna flame but PClinuxos doesn't come
near to Pardus for out of box experience. Cracking work, keep it up!
