I have just discovered Pardus after using Ubuntu for several years.  I'm a bit older than the average Linux user, so ease of use is a major factor.  I don't mind using the command line every now and then to sort out a problem (even with windows I used msdos commands), but I just want to get on with using my computer.  Pardus is the first distro I have found that seems to have just worked.  Very impressed. 

I live in a retirement home, and during the last couple of years, I have converted nearly half of the residents (all of whom have internet access) to Ubuntu.  It looks like I have to start again and spread the Pardus message!  We have just persuaded the management to install a faster wireless broadband system, so my next task is to set up a LAN.

I will keep Ubuntu for a while so that my great grand children can frag me in Alien Arena.  Once I work out how to get it on Pardus, I think I will migrate permanently.

You are not alone as an "older user":

Greetings, scutiform!

I would have said "hello", sooner, but we've been having land-line problems for over a week. 

That is great to hear you are converting others to Linux!

Welcome!  I've found the Pardus community to be very friendly and helpful.

As far as being older, I've run into a number of Linux developers who are very happy to chat about their grandkids.  I think Linux is popular enough now that you can't make a generic statement about a typical user anymore.  That's a good thing, IMHO  Grin
