A Date with Daryna

,----[ Quote ]
| I can honestly say that Daryna is yet another successful distribution release
| of Mint. It is highly recommended for those who want a hassle-free Linux
| distribution because of its exceptional hardware and software support,
| ease-of-use, and ever growing online community that can provide some
| technical assistance. I can also recommend Mint 4.0 to newbies as it can be
| painlessly configured without even touching a CLI. As a final point, Daryna
| undoubtedly maintained or even improved Mint’s natural elegance.

Pardus 2007.1 -- Almost Perfect

| Pardus is a unique distribution which has its own solutions which

| and quality, it'll be an important player in the category of
| extensive desktop distributions.

| check out either of these distributions. However if you're using
| a recent model Nvidia card, I have to recommend SimplyMEPIS
| over PCLinuxOS for its out of the box Nvidia driver support.

Pardus gives Linux a custom lift

,----[ Quote ]
| Apart from a KDE desktop and applications, the developers of the
| Pardus 2007 Linux distribution have built an entire distribution
| from scratch. Pardus, released last month, has its own multilingual
| installer, custom dependency-resolving package manager, and an INIT
| system that slashes boot times by several seconds. The distribution
| has come a long way since its first release in 2005, when it was
| based on Gentoo and lacked a package manager. Thanks to its custom
| tools, it's one of the easiest Linux distribution to run and manage.
| [...]
| If you've been using a Linux distribution for some time, getting
| used to Pardus wouldn't take long, despite all its custom tools. New
| users will appreciate the ease in carrying out out system tasks such
| as setting up firewalls and managing startup services. With its
| modest hardware requirements and streamlined boot scripts,
| Pardus could easily turn an old machine gathering dust into
| a modern Linux desktop.


Pardus Linux 2007

| Having seen dozens of Linux distributions announcing themselves with
| great enthusiasm only to disappear at the sight of a first problem a
| few months later, I am not easily impressed by any new arrival on the
| Linux distro scene. As such, when the first stable release of Pardus
| Linux was announced in 2005, I found myself inserting the installation
| CD with a considerable amount of scepticism.
