The Pardus community worldwide is sad because of what happened to Pardus.de. In spite of this, Pardus users still have faith in Pardus Anka, the project that came to life as a fork of the Turkish distro, but which actually keeps most of Pardus actual inner identity.
What happened to the original Pardus? Is it dead yet?
I remember going into the forum of a Linux distro I don't use some time ago. They said that Pardus was almost dead. That may be true...but it is still debatable. Let's remember that now Pardus (the original) is based on Debian. People call it Pardus Debian.
I am running a RC version of Pardus Debian. It works extremely well, even more considering it is not a finished product. Two days ago, I updated it and noticed a few changes. For example, when it starts, now you can read "Pardus 2012." It is taking shape little by little.
If anyone wants to try it out, the downloads are here.
