I commented this morning. I'm wormmy1 lol.
Joseph, If you're Tellthetruth, you're very passionate about your Pardus!
I must say though, he did give it the benefit of the doubt that the slowness was due to the VM and he did have many good things to say about it. Anyone who goes there will see our comments and realize that the video is not an accurate representation of Pardus. Most people will look at more than on review too. So, I don't think it hurts Pardus too much.
Having said that, I never would have published a review of ANY distro that looked like that if I suspected it was due to the VM. It'd be in an inaccurate misrepresentation.
I admit, I'm xxTellTheTruthxx. I know he said some good things about Pardus and I know I may go overboard at times, but his crafty comment about Pardus being "Bloated" was what set me off. He may have corrected himself right after he said it, but it was the way he did it that got under my skin. He said Pardus was a Bloated OS, then he said, well maybe bloated isn't the right word, so he called it "full featured."
If I was a new user and heard him say it was Bloated (even though he corrected himself) looking at that review and how slow it was running would make that bloated comment stick in my head and I wouldn't bother trying Pardus out.
I understand he made a point to mention Pardus wasn't running well on the VM, but he said it was the slowest install he's ever done and he said that a number of times. But you're right Craig, he should have never published that review with the errors and problems Pardus was having on his VM. I mean it's good to get the word out so others can see Pardus, but to do it in the way he did made Pardus look like a slow, bloated, barely usable operating system.... you gotta think, how many new Linux users even know what a "Virtual Machine is"? The point of spreading Linux is to get Windows and Mac users to switch. Windows users are looking for an OS that is easy to use and usable out of the box, were everything just works.
IDK, I'm done ranting.... I just didn't like that review.... I guess I'll have to make my own.
