Screenshot[edit]

I've changed the screenshot because the old one didn't show a default look: it used a custom icon theme. Typhoner 18:42, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

Reception[edit]

Pardus is used by people all over the world, not just europe.

it looks childish and rather defensive (and worse, without reference)--85.96.29.197 (talk) 09:32, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

OS?[edit]

Pardus is a linux distro, it's not exactly an operating system. Can this page be moved to Pardus (distribution) or something like that? Tulcod (talk) —Preceding comment was added at 20:47, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

exactly!88.228.130.142 (talk) 15:38, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

Oppose. You are just calling for more "What is an operating system, and is it Linux or GNU/Linux?"-themed flames. --AVRS (talk) 15:48, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

Gentoo[edit]

Pardus was based on Gentoo earlier, but isn't anymore now. I don't know the details, but this is worth a mention. 85.0.184.98 (talk) 00:55, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

Agreed & added. 85.76.189.136 (talk) 16:29, 22 January 2011 (UTC)

How can I support Pardus?[edit]

There is a button for PayPal at the Ubuntu site to support Ubuntu but I did not find how to support Pardus, too. --91.7.50.84 (talk) 03:57, 6 December 2010 (UTC) Pardus is being developed by a government agency so no external support both technical and financial accepted. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 94.55.130.24 (talk) 12:38, 2 April 2011 (UTC)

pun on "pi: si:" revisited, trivia[edit]

[PC and pisi -short and fast, begging a reaction from the cat- (pisi pisi is here kitty kitty) are time varied soundalikes, naming convention was zooey from the cats section but not consistent any more, as in some latin for ibis of bird kind lately). Perhaps the proj mgr is changed?! One way to break the jinx is to start every day ;). Oh, by the way, please add min. requirements for hardware ia/amd x86 aswell as system requirements (like sun/alpha/mac/arm etc) if applicable.

Therefore, please reword the pun line as the other side of the pun I think is omitted. Then please feel free to erase all this](Sag~ol). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.115.17.83 (talk) 02:23, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

Grammar check needed.[edit]

Last changes need grammar check. --Namcojoulder (talk) 00:30, 18 September 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, seems like some translation software was used. I rewrote parts of the article. Feel free to correct more parts which I may have missed. --KAMiKAZOW (talk) 02:05, 18 September 2011 (UTC)

Non secular?[edit]

What is "Non secular" supposed to mean, in the context of an operating system? Is there some cultural significance to this phrase that other editors have not been aware of? There have been four attempts to insert this phrase, three by the same IP editor in one day, who is now up against the 'three revert rule'. Please explain what you are trying to achieve. --Greenmaven (talk) 03:00, 12 December 2013 (UTC)

In Turkey a number of linux distros are designed with specific ethnic/religious groups in mind, take Sabily and many others. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 122.56.234.211 (talk) 03:29, 12 December 2013 (UTC)

I think you might resolve this conflict with other editors, if you explain your comment above, clearly and fully, further down in the article. Adding the words 'non secular' in the first sentence of the lead paragraph makes no sense to the average reader. WP is intended for a world audience and it needs to be clear for them. --Greenmaven (talk) 03:38, 12 December 2013 (UTC)
YOuve provided no source and no real explanation for the edit above. Sabily isn't even a Turkish project and is really little more than Ubuntu with different backgrounds and some Islamic software preinstalled, so it isn't comparable here and mentioning it won't help you win the edit war. You've already made this edit 6 times so unless you or someone else can find a way to make it pass verification criteria any more edits will result in a block. Soap 04:10, 12 December 2013 (UTC)

Date format in table[edit]

The dates in the table under "Release history" are using the ISO 8601 format (YYYY-MM-DD).[1] May 80.134.94.228 or another editor state the reason to use this format? 84.127.115.190 (talk) 04:57, 25 November 2014 (UTC)
