About Pardus Linux
Introduction Pardus

Pardus is a GNU/Linux distribution funded and developed by the Scientific & Technological Research Council of Turkey. Pardus has a range of unique features, such as Mudur, a start-up framework of Pardus to speed up the boot process, and PiSi, an efficient package management system with a user-friendly graphical interface.

Pardus operating system's latest beta version, codenamed ?ATA?, is out for download and testing. This beta version will be followed by the stable version Pardus 2007, to be released on December 18th, 2006. Pardus is a Linux based operating system, developed under the auspices of TUBITAK (The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey) UEKAE (National Electronic and Cryptography Research Institute).

Aim Of The Pardus

1. To provide full Turkish support by making the character structure compatible to Turkish (UTF-8 compatibility) and by making all the messages and documents visible to users into Turkish.

2. To ensure that it is an operating system which can be installed and used more easily than the existing Linux distributions and other competitive operating systems.

3. Designing its in a modular configuration which can achieve the required flexibility and high performance with a task-based and human-focused approach rather than a tool-based and technology-based one.
