Any Pardus Linux user?

I just saw Pardus release their latest ISO. Back in college, I used the distro as my daily driver and it was a pleasant experience. But then around 2011-12, I read several articles indicating Pardus was officially dead and hence stopped following the distro. Seeing the latest release was a total surprise for me. I'd like to give it a test drive, especially the XFCE edition. I was wondering if anyone here is a regular Pardus user and maybe comment if it's as good as it was back in the days?

I ran Pardus with KDE a few years ago - it was very polished, worked very nicely, and so was really boring. :laughing:

Glad to see it back. :slight_smile:

Downloads and release map:

Giving this a go now (live DVD has Turkish and English language options).

What may hold the project back from a wider audience is the lack of an English site translation...

Edit:

As I expected, very nicely polished distro.

If anyone wants a sold Debian-based distro, this one is worth a look.

Thanks @jonathon. Very polished distro indeed. Brings back some good old memories :slight_smile: I'll give their XFCE edition a test drive this weekend. Cheers.

Actually Their are now 2 current versions The debian version which is a rip off, and the fork or resurrection of the original pardus, yes the original was good but as @jonathon says just damn boring, have not got around to try the fork of the original yet so to soon to really comment on it. http://www.pisilinux.org/en but you will note the pussycat and here
