My name is Mike and I've goofed around with Linux since 1995, but never really learned anything much about it.
Or shall I say enough to be productive with it. I'd say I've done around 40 different Linux/BSD installs in the past couple of months on my laptop, and I have to say that after installing Pardus I immediately felt that this was the most polished distro that I ran across. It runs really well on my laptop so far, and I intend to use it for quite a while.
As I learn more I intend to become involved in the community, hopefully contributing to the wiki early on, but perhaps to development needs as I learn more about Linux. I'm a .Net developer by day and would like to see a MonoDevelop package for Pardus soon. :-)
Congratulations to the Pardus team on the brilliant work of this distro to date.
