Pardus got this licence:

License:
All products developed by TÜBİTAK/BİLGEM released under terms of 2nd generation General Public License (GPL v2). Pardus compiles a number of free softwares as well. You may find all the licenses at source repository.
http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-2.0.html

So I suppose it could be a fork if someone want to do one. PCLinuxOS and Mageia was developed from Mandriva.
Anyway best to wait for a official announcement what will happend.

With more promotion I think Pardus have a future:

10.000 thousands DVD.s was given away on this event.

Yes, Pardus can be forked. But look at Slackware. #16. Based on ... nothing Smiley Like Pardus.
We will wait, but we want managers of Pardus project to find out about us.
So, until official announcement will happen, we will promote Pardus.
May be at weekend our team will show a new site of russian community.

And yes, everything is simple (if you have a team):
Promotion (in internet + in real) + more packages + bugfixing.
In Russia we will promote as much as we can.

When Pardus stops one only can choose from the very big ones if one does not want to encounter similar phenomenons a couple of years later. There are so many distributions with a relatively small development team, thus the risk of ending up is great.

If this would be the case I guess I would go back to OpenSuSE, since Fedora is more Gnome based and Ubuntu as well and I always felt more confortable with native KDE distro 's but that's just a matter of personal taste.

I always felt Open SuSE and the previous SuSE were too "big" as default install components concern, for a beginner you hardly knew what all these services and servers you could edit in the Preferences settings really meant. However a big advantage is that OpenSuSE like the Buntu's and Fedora have lots of software packages available.

Somehow sad news...this thread...but as it never expanded actively beyond Turkey...it would not fully surprise me at all if Pardus vanishes from the desktop in time..it's a pity

Have you heard about PCLinuxOS? I think, you have. It was made by 1 man. And it is #7 now, so I thinkg it will never die. I don't know how many people are in PCLinuxOS's team now, but it has over 13000 packages (compare to Pardus).
The main problem of Pardus - it has no promotion. And few packages.

Yes I like PCLinuxOS very much but I am afraid it will go down one day when it is too dependent on one or just a few people. PClinux OS recently was the only distro I used next to Pardus, nice and fast distro.

It will be shame if Pardus development is stoped.I hope in that case someone will make a fork so that idae continue to live.I will not delete Pardus until I see official message of discontinuing.I also hope than from our reactions someone in TÜBİTAK will understand that Pardus mean something to people uotside of Turkey too,so having that in mind hopefuly they will continue with Pardus development.

If something terrible will happen, we will find our new "texstar".
Many "texstar"s  Wink
But I hope it will never happen, so we are waiting for news from TÜBİTAK.

I don't speak turkish at all.
Do you? Google translator is useless here - results are unreadable for me.
If yes, can you tell us about it and
can you tell us about developers.

This ^^^ is also valid for me.
And this is also the reason for my >>> ..... the following post: http://forum.pardususer.de/index.php?topic=2460.0
And google-translate does a much better job with the DE-translated version.

that empty mail-lists are ... not so good Smiley

P.S. sorry to texstar for using his famous nickname.

P.P.S. Promotion will be done Smiley

And forget about W7 Wink
