Pardus 2009 Looks Fantastic

Filed under

Before using Pardus, I had read in the Pardus release announcement that the Pardus had been “improved graphically in every part of the distribution”. It takes about 3 seconds to realize this as you put in the Pardus CD and immediately notice splash screens that have been updated from bootloader to login screen. The color/logo scheme carries on through the distro and provides a very pleasant experience. I also thought the KDE 4.2 desktop look and basic behavior was fantastic on Pardus.

The one thing I noticed was the Turkish language setting was enabled by default. This doesn’t work for me as I can only speak and read English. Press F2 to change.


PiSi package manager is a well respected tool used for installing, upgrading and removing software packages on Pardus. I was able to add and remove packages easily using this graphical tool.
