The answer is simple: an active community that raises PARDUS ANKA from its ashes!
The Pardus ANKA community is making good progress with their fork of Pardus. According to Pardus Life, the Anka community has already translated their site into English. There, you can see what is happening with this distro. Right now, they are promoting Anka by means of banners.
According to Pardus Life, the official Pardus, now based on Debian, is advancing, too. Their RC2 is very stable.
For those who wanted to burn Pardus: now you have two big cats taking shape that will hunt you!
I'm rooting for both Pardus Anka and Pardus!
