Pardus Linux 2009

Filed under
Linux

One of the nice things about Linux is that anybody can create a Linux distribution and sometimes the better distros come from the most unlikely of places. Pardus Linux 2009 is a Turkish distribution. Pardus Linux was created and maintained by The National Research Institute of Electronics and Cryptology (UEKAE), an affiliate of the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey.

The word “pardus” comes from the latin name for a leopard native to Turkey. And Pardus uses a package manager called “PiSi” which is a Turkish word for kitty. Hey, aside from Apple, how many people name their products after kitties? A unique and humorous naming scheme, to be sure.
