Hello, I'm Alex from Massachusetts in the USA. I've been looking around for a good KDE distro for a long time, disappointed with a few things in OpenSuSE 11.3 (I loved 11.2), not quite liking PCLinuxOS, Debian and Fedora's KDE attempts just not being very good, and even the wonderful Linux Mint project not doing as well in their KDE version as their GNOME. I've tried one after another since OpenSuSE 11.2 to find a distro I could love as much, and my search seemed like it was going nowhere...until I discovered some very positive reviews of Pardus 2011. I had heard of Pardus before, even tried the 2009 version on my mom's netbook last summer before settling on a more netbook-centric distro, and I did remember liking it. After playing with the live CD and in VirtualBox (I was sad Pisi was not on the live; I know it only installs to RAM but I like testing the package manager when I look at new distros), I couldn't find anything to complain about, and found a lot of really nice touches no other distro I had tried had. Kudos to the Pardus development team for really doing their best to create a fantastic KDE distro!!

I have only had Pardus installed to my machine for a day now but I am loving it already. If I had to find one thing to complain about, and it's a minor one at that, it's the small package selection that I hope will continue to be updated. In particular I would like to see KOffice and Empathy in the repositories. Other than that though, everything has been running smoothly, things look and feel great, and I'm very comfortable here. I hope to stay with Pardus for a very long time!!

You are welcome here.  Smiley

About the Koffice I think it will coming to:
http://bugs.pardus.org.tr/show_bug.cgi?id=16568

But I am not sure how long it will take. About Empathy you could write a own request for it to. Can speed things up to get applications to the repositories:
http://bugs.pardus.org.tr/

It seems they have a package for it here.

Take a look here for KOffice!
http://packages.pardus.org.tr/info/playground/source/koffice.html

You may build pisi packages from the source files, for instance;
sudo pisi bi https://svn.pardus.org.tr/pardus/playground/mete/koffice/base/koffice/pspec.xml

Found http://www.pstoedit.net/ and downloaded the source file.
Could not install it from source, so I have no idea whether it will work with that or not.
