I have noticed thats a lot of programs in Pardus 2009.2 RC, if looking in the Pisi. Old versions of Pardus often been critised for a small program package, But I think now it can compete with most of the others distributions in this matter.
I have often before going back to Ubuntu or Linux Mint before because of this, But I proplably will stick to Pardus this time, now the program handler have the most things you needs. Even Gnome programs like Cheese (for webcams)
It feels stabile to, so I think it would not be so much problems as when Pardus 2009 was released. So I hope Pardus will do some promotion/commercial, they got a great product. It would deserve a place among the top ten distributions at Distrowatch.
