Love, liking, attachment, loyalty, sentimentality, fraternity, brotherhood ... Fair enough.
... the only thing is that we need to update security patches. ...
1) Is that (security patches) the "only" thing we need? Everything else is fine with Pardus?! What about LibreOffice?.. Latest hardware drivers?..
2) And, WHO is going to do the security patches? WHEN?
I understand you Richard. You have been a good friend. But there is no hope for Pardus any more. I hope to see you around after the New Year, at another Linux distro forum (either Mint or Mageia or Ubuntu). I am already registered at Mageia. If I change my mind and go to Mint or Ubuntu, I will still be using "dirse" (or something very similar, if dirse is taken) so that you remember me, like I will remember you.
