So good to hear from you. And great news you give. Thank you.
Yes, I still use Pardus, last version (2011.2). I am also happy to hear about PisiLinux developments.
This reminds me another topic:
You remember that I wrote many ideas about forming a European/World association.
Not necessarily only Pardus/Pisi. Maybe we can start a new "cooperative" company. It can be international. All about Linux distros and open source in general. A cooperative is stronger than an association.
Maybe you know, 2012 was the United Nations "Cooperatives Year". I have been working on cooperative business model.
We can challenge Windows/MS "corporate" (profit-based) model with this "cooperative" model.
Training, education, information is very important. Advertising, marketing, publicising ... Many people still think Windows/MS is the only option.
In Turkey, there is a profit corporation called "Bilge Adam" ("The Wise Man"). They started about 12 years ago. They have many branches around the country. They have many offices (private courses) and they always teach only Windows/MS. Of course, Microsoft supports them financially and otherwise.
I know there is Linux Foundation, Ubuntu, Canonical, etc. But where are they physically?! They must have offices in every country, every city. Just like Microsoft. We have to fight the enemy with its own weapons.
If anyone interested in teaching Linux/Open Source physically, at classes, to general public, please let me know.
We are starting a new cooperative company in Istanbul, on general education, culture, arts & science.
My regards to all the members of this forum.
