My name is Caitlyn and I live near Raleigh, North Carolina, in the United States.  I was introduced to Linux in 1995 and have used it as my primary OS since 1998.  I also work with Linux/UNIX professionally.

Perhaps my most controversial role is writing about Linux.  I am currently the regular feature writer for DistroWatch Weekly.  I reviewed Pardus 2009 (yes, a largely favorable review) for Monday's issue.  I also write for O'Reilly Media and for my own blog.

I am new to Pardus (just since 2009 was released) and I am impressed with it for the most part so far.  It certainly has the nicest KDE 4 implementation I've found yet.  It is also the first distro that fully supported absolutely everything in my Sylvania g Netbook Meso (a/k/a Amtek Elego outside the U.S.) right out of the virtual box.  Very nice!

I also have a circa 2002 Toshbia Satellite 1805-S204.  Pardus did not correctly configure the Toshiba CyberBlade XPi graphics card (yes, I need to file a bug report) but I was able to make the needed additions to my xorg.conf file to get that working correctly.  It was also slow running KDE 4 but is much better running Xfce 4.6.1 from the contrib repo.

Anyway, I'm pretty happy with Pardus so far so you may be stuck with me  Grin

Thanks for the kind words, Gürkan.  I'm also very pleased that you took the time to translate it.  So long as it's done accurately I do love to see my work translated into various languages.
