Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

[ Thanks to Andrew Weber for this link. ]

"If you're a KDE fan but haven't taken Pardus Linux out for a spin in awhile, maybe it's time you should. Yesterday brought us Pardus 2009.1 which features the new hybrid .iso files, one of the easiest installers around in YALI, a sweet KDE 4.3.4 desktop, and growing number of available applications. I gave the new version of Pardus a shot and here's what I found.

"Pardus 2009.1 includes the latest stable version of KDE 4.3.4, Linux kernel, OpenOffice.Org, Mozilla Firefox 3.5.7, Gimp 2.6.8, Xorg 1.6.5 and Python 2.6.4.


"I had to cover installation because the Pardus installation is unlike any you've experienced. The Pardus 2009.1 release includes special hybrid .iso files that make installation even easier. Download the .iso files and read the release announcement here. Pardus is currently only available in 32-bit, however a 64-bit effort is currently underway and should be seen around the middle of 2010. If you can't download it, buy Pardus from the BeginLinux cart for $1.95."
