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

[ Thanks to Jim Lynch for this link. ]

"It's been a while since I last took a look at Pardus and much has changed since then. The distro has been upgraded to Pardus 2011. Pardus is a KDE distribution created in Turkey by the National Research Institute of Electronics and Cryptology (UEKAE). The word "pardus" is actually derived from the Latin name for a leopard that lives in Turkey. This is why you'll see leopard/kitty graphics in the distribution at times.

"Pardus is not as well known as some other distributions and that's a real shame because it has much to offer desktop Linux users. Even if you're a die-hard GNOME user, you might find yourself very impressed with Pardus 2011. It's one of the best KDE-based distros available right now.

"What's New In This Release

"Here's a sample of the new features in this release:

"YALI (Yet Another Linux Installer) updates
Kaptan (desktop configuration tool) updates
Package Manager updates
Linux Kernel 2.6.37
Plymouth now included
Perl 5.12.2
X.org 1.9.4 RC1
KDE SC 4.5.5
GTK applications rendered with Oxygen style"
