Hello Thijs,

I heard it being mentioned a couple of months ago in a Dutch videocast called n3rd.tv, this was just after my unpleasant experience with Ubuntu. Then I searched for Pardus in Google and ended up on the Dutch website of Pardus. I installed it and it worked (except for Wifi networking) on my laptop.

Kind regards,
Frank

I was looking for a distro that could do WPA out of the box.  Distrowatch had a few, but Pardus took the prize!

I was using Ubuntu before, but I grew tried of its instability, so I decided to scroll through Distrowatch to see which distros I hadn't tried, I found out Pardus was made by the Turkish government which was a big plus. Although, I had tried to install it several months ago, but I rushed the installation, when I saw the Turkish writing I simply exitted the installer as I didn't have time to waste (I was trying a lot of different distros at the same time).

I read an enthusiastic review of Pardus on a blog. I was not fully satisfied with Kubuntu which was demanding too much configuration work.

I've read about Pardus here: http://archux.com/blogs/miggols99/pardus-2008-where-were-you 2008 was current version that time, but it had issues with particular sound chipsets (MCP51, I have one), so I switched to another distro. But upon 2008.1 I switched back to Pardus.

I was looking at moving to linux from OS X (I had moved from MS to OS X two years before) and did one of these "which distro to chose" website-based test. It suggested OpenSuse, PCLinuxOS and Pardus. Because OpenSuse was better known, I tried it, but found it extremely slow and configuring my wifi was a nightmare for a newbie. I tried PLOS, but I found it ugly and wifi was also an issue. I gave Pardus a spin and not only did wifi worked out of the box, but is was good-looking and fast. That ticked all the boxes.

I don't actually remember.  When I had my subscription to Linux format they had a monthly section from the guy who runs distrowatch.  I am pretty sure I read about it there.

I can remember everything else though like my first package my first time in #pardus-devel haha.

I learn to say hello everyone through IRC haha.

Idont know if he still does.  My subscription ran out about 8 months ago and I never renewed.

The magazine was ok.  I bought it for the reviews and guides.  It has except tutorials and guides.  They have things like how to set up a media centre.  How to program a simply pyhton game, then they run it over a few editions.

However it is still over priced though, but what computer magazine isnt now haha.

at the Linux Mint newsletter that mentioned the release of Mint KDE CE 5 Elyssa back in September.  Someone posted to the blog to take a look at Pardus and I had to check it out.  I did.  I'm glad I did!

Mhmrcs I havent read Micromart.  When I see it, it seems to be just about hardware.  I have no real interest in hardware.  I have never even built my own computer! haha

Lol, fair point, theres a lot of advertising about hardware, but they have pretty good articles about computing in general (nothing windows specific etc).
