Nice to read with many screenshots. But I hope it will be a real review of it soon.
One of the best webpages with Linux reviews I think is this:
http://www.linuxbsdos.com/

A article about LVM/Pardus is there to:

Now its a real review of Pardus 2011: Smiley
http://www.linuxbsdos.com/2011/01/25/pardus-2011-review/

If you not want to read the full review in the link here is a short summary:

"Final Thoughts and Suggestions: Our digital world revolves around apps, applications, software, packages, or whatever you want to call it. And the more that are available, the merrier. Unfortunately, Pardus comes up short in this area. I understand that it is still a relatively young distribution, however, a lot more effort needs to go in to ensuring that the most common applications are available in the repository as soon as a new version is released.

Applications aside, here are a few suggestions (these are suggestions. If they sound otherwise, blame it on the weather – it’s freezing here):

    * Since LVM is the default disk partitioning, system-config-lvm should be installed by default.
    * More users, especially those who must encrypt their hard drives, can be lured to Pardus if the installer supports disk encryption. Further, I think a disk encryption option similar to the one on Fedora, and the one that will be available on the next release of PC-BSD, is the best way to implement disk encryption on an installer.
    * When a user selects an automated installation method, the installer should provide an option to review the partitions created before the installation proceeds.
    * Firewall Manager should be enabled and configured out of the box.
    * On YALI and on the User Manager, the minimum password length enforced should be increased to six or eight, rather than four. The reason, I think, is obvious.
    * Every modern desktop computer should have a webcam application installed by default. Cheese is in the repository, but it should really be installed by default."


I agree in the writers conclusion that the repo should be larger from the start. But I also know it will be bigger when Pardus releasing the first update packages.
