"Pardus is also different in that it was developed from scratch and it is not derivative of any other Linux distribution (although in its early days it was based on Gentoo Linux). It offers packages for both desktop and server use. It is currently only available for 32-bit x86 compatible systems. Development of a 64-bit version of Pardus is scheduled to begin in September. For this review I am focusing on Pardus on the desktop. Once again I used two systems: my seven month old Sylvania g Netbook Meso (1.6 GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU, 1 GB RAM, 80 GB HDD) and my 6.5 year old Toshiba Satellite 1805-S204 (1 GHz Intel Celeron CPU, 512 MB RAM, 20 GB HDD). Both systems meet minimum requirements for any current Linux distribution and both have hardware which is challenging with some distributions.
