Do not spend Your time and effort trying to make Pardus look more beautiful because is already great!
Instead of invest time and effort trying to make Pardus FAST, SNAPPY as much as possible – like Win xp or Yoper (I suppose).
Pardus is already pretty responsive but FireFox and Conqueror as a web browser work very slow. It take about 3 minutes to buffor local www page. I would love to use it but I can’t. Web browsers are too slow. (W. browsers on Suse11.0, Mandriva works OK on the same computer so I think it must be a way to improve it). Package manager is too slow.
I think You know this but I say it again. Because there limited quantity of Pardus developers stick with KDE only. Stick whit one environment. I wish it to be KDE3.5 and do not change for kde4. KDE 3.5 is stable, mature and that’s important. Also people have already habits with it.
(Blame on my specific hardware (have very old computer) but I do not notice any difference in terms of speed and responsiveness between KDE, Gnome, Xfce).
(I have little linux knowledge, so don't know if it's possible. It's only my wish).
