Pardus info came from Distrowatch and a favourable review by Dan of Linux Outlaws. I created a partition to try it out and Pardus 2007 installed without a hitch. The Wireless card (Netgear/Atheros) was picked-up and configured OK and what seemed like a million updates were installed. I'm not so keen on KDE, I prefer GNOME or XFCE but this release is so stable, I'm impressed. In all Pardus is like one of the biggies like Mandriva, Ubuntu and derivatives and deserves to do well.
