Preview: Pardus 2009.2 Release Candidate

Filed under

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.

Let me start by saying that the Pardus installation is BY FAR the best I have seen in any Linux distro, probably even better than that of some OS you have to pay quite some money for. From the very first screen, it feels pleasant, interesting, informative and thoroughly well put together.


After booting up our fresh Pardus installation, we continue to get tasty and beatiful splash and login screens. The KDE implementation is tightly integrated with the Pardus branding, which is apparent throughout the boot up and shutdown processes. This results in a nice solid and professional feel to the whole experience.

Rest Here

Gonna try it

I've always heard good thing about Pardus so I think I will fire it up in Virtualbox and give it a look and see.
