I think the best marketing are if you are high up at the Distrowatch list:http://distrowatch.com/stats.php?section=popularity
Then you get attention from users and magazines etc..
I dont think it's good when Pardus decline there so much recently even with the new release of 2011.1. So maybe they should to do a little more marketing/promotion in some ways, or try something else to recive more attention. I did some request for it before (Bug #12727 and #17211)
But their organization seems to be slow and bureaucratic in many aspects.
Im little worried about the future for the Pardus project if this go on for a longer time.
Will someone care to translate international Pardus versions beside the Turkish one if it are to few users?
