Now that Pardus has gone to Debian, PiSi, its package manager, is gone. That's sad because it was part of the identity of this distro. I must say that this new Pardus is very stable and its package variety has increased a lot (thanks to Debian), but I still miss PiSi.
I learned recently (and it has been discussed in the MEPIS forums) that the new release of SolusOS will go away from Debian and will become independent...but adopting PiSi.
Hey! That's good news! PiSi won't fade away into oblivion! I always thought that it was a great tool.
I don't know much about SolusOS (except that some MEPIS fellows are very fond of it), but now the bold move by its developer (leaving Debian to search for a new path) really made me interested.
I wish the best to the members of SolusOS community.
By the way...I feel it's time for me to download SolusOS now...
