Comparison: Best 2010 Linux desktop for begginers 

,----[ Quote ]
| There you have it, a close comparison between 
| these three fabulous Linux distros, resulting 
| in very evenly matched scores. I personally 
| love all three, each having its own character, 
| strengths, but also weaknesses. Having said 
| so, looking strictly for which one offers the 
| smoothest and most intuitive experience, I 
| would probably have to say that Linux Mint 9 
| is the winner in my opinion.
| Hopefully this comparison will help you make 
| your choice based on your own needs and taste. 
| I am pretty sure any of the choices is a sure 
| winner.


Pardus 2009.2 review

,----[ Quote ]
| Recommendations â Pardus 2009.2 is a light-
| weight desktop distribution. Light-weight 
| because it does not support disk encryption, 
| boot-loader password protection, and LVM and 
| RAID. If those are features you can live 
| without, then Pardus is worth at least a try. 
| It is just like Linux Mint, but with fewer 
| applications in its repository.
| What Iâm looking forward to in the next 
| release is for the network interface and the 
| graphical firewall manager to be configured 
| out of the box. Iâll also love to see 3D 
| desktop configuration as a step in Kaptan. 



Final Review: Pardus 2009.2

,----[ Quote ]
| When I found about Pardus some weeks ago, I
| was surprised to find a distro which is not
| among the most popular ones, but an
| impressive piece of work nevertheless. I
| personally believe the Pardus developers have
| a very good understanding of their users
| needs, specially those users who may not have
| any experience in Linux or KDE. I think they
| have done a superb job at removing
| "obstacles" where it matters, joining other
| great distributions like PCLinuxOS 2010 or
| Linux Mint 9 in making the Linux desktop more
| accessible than ever.

| Pardus 2009.2 Geronticus eremita announced
| with the new technologic features.
| Updates in Pardus Technologies
| Core Pardus technologies are updated to new
| versions, including many bugfixes,
| optimizations and new features.
| Pardus manager family has been refactored and
| optimized for new KDE 4.4 / Qt 4.6
| environments. Pardus KDE tools, Network
| Plasmoid for easy network profile switching

Pardus Linux 2009.2 Has KDE SC 4.4.4

,----[ Quote ]
| The Pardus development team released a few
| minutes ago the new Pardus 2009.2 Linux-based
| operating system. Powered by the Linux kernel
| and built on top of the newly
| released KDE Software Compilation 4.4.4
| environment, Pardus 2009.2 (codename
| Geronticus eremita) comes with an amazing
| installer and bleeding-edge applications such
| as the OpenOffice.org office suite,
| the Mozilla Firefox 3.6.3 web browser or The
| GIMP 2.6.8 image editor.


Preview: Pardus 2009.2 Release Candidate

,----[ Quote ]
| The release of Linux Pardus 2009.2 is near so
| I wanted to give the Beta a run and see
| what's new before I actually get my hands on
| the final release a few days/weeks from now.
| Unfortunately, the link to the beta from
| DISTROWATCH was broken. In all fairness, that
| link is broken on the Pardus official WEBSITE
| as well. I kept looking and was lucky enough
| to find a link to the Release Candidate,
| which actually makes more sense for a fair
| preview article. In fact, this RC is so
| complete that this almost feels like a
| review!
| [...]
| Some time ago I compared Ubuntu 10.04 and
| Windows 7. Back then I stated that Windows 7
| made things very simple at the expense of
| diversity and choice. In other words,
| everything was intuitive because options were
| very limited and mostly predefined by
| developers. I was essentially justifying that
| Ubuntu's arguably more complicated interface
| was the result of its great flexibility and
| freedom. PCLinuxOS 2010, Linux Mint 9 and
| specially Pardus 2009.2 have demonstrated
| that a much better job can be done in making
| the Linux desktop accessible to anyone
| without compromising its power.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
