"Pardus Linux, the independent Linux distribution hailing from Turkey has seen its next major update with version 2011. Pardus is funded by the Scientific & Technological Research Council of Turkey, which is a governmental agency that manages, funds and conducts research in the areas of education, Science, and technology in Turkey. Its underlying goal is to guide and advance Turkey's competitiveness in the global market in these key areas. Pardus is used by the Turkish Armed Forces, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Turkish Police, Turkey's Social Security Institution, and the Ministry of Defense. For ordinary users around the world, Pardus is just a really nice distro.

"Pardus comes as an install image or live DVD for i686 and x86_64 architectures. In this latest release the kernel was updated to 2.6.37, KDE to 4.5.5, and Firefox to 4.0 Beta9. LibreOffice has replaced OpenOffice.org and the Pardus bootsplash has been replaced by Plymouth. The Pardus installer now supports LVM/RAID and UUID identification and all GTK applications are themed with GTK Oxygen for continuity."
