Useful if you’re Turkish
Not useful if you’re not Turkish
Pardus is based on Debian, so it needs to offer something that Debian doesn’t have, and even then it will be competing in a crowded field. The one thing it offers is support for Turkish.
The security is poor. The installer won’t set a boot-loader password or encrypt /home. Neither SEL nor Apparmor are set up. The firewall is disabled and no tool to enable it is installed.
The configuration is not user friendly. The installer in the English version sets the locale to the USA and doesn’t set a time zone. Even after setting a time zone, the clock wasn’t observing daylight saving. The menu was a muddle, and no editor for it was installed. The sound configuration wouldn’t enable my usb speakers except in Qt-based applications, even after editing a file in /etc. Of other distros in the Debian family, Arios, Mint, Pinguy, Solus, and SolydXK all do better than this.
The software was plentiful and satisfactory, complete with media codecs and Flash, but most Debian derivatives could claim as much.
