“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replaced OpenOffice.org and the Pardus bootsplash has been replaced
by Plymouth.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.”
