It is very stable and fast. I wish they can come up with an app like rufus that can work on linux.

Old versions (until 2011.2) had their exclusive softwares like yali, kaptan, pisi etc. developed by them. New versions (2013 and so on ) are just another fork of Debian so nothing special just some interface changes, language corrections, some minor changes thats all.
It is big shame that in order to develop their unique softwares "Scientific & Technological Research Council of Turkey" just does some visual changes to a Debian and then releases it as their official distrubution.
I hope they start to develop their unique softwares again in further distrobutions.

A really really unnecessary fork of Debian.
For those who don't know, Pardus was a project started in 2005. It always had a place in first 50 on distrowatch's listings, in 2011 they were at 37th place. It sounds like a dream; an OS that is developed by professionals like, a whole science department of Turkey, right? If it wasn't discounted in 2011 who knows how far they would be now. They claimed that driver of touch screen that is used on computers in schools are "only" available on Debian and that's why they threw 6 years of development away. It's 2017 as I write this comment, and computers are still only running Windows 10. Well, it used to dualboot Pardus 2011.2 and Windows 7 but staff who are hired from government now wipes disks and installs Windows 10, at least that's what's happening on my school. A sellout? Probably.
Looking at their latest changelog, they claim they're fixing bugs that are not even on Debian (being able to create /home as seperate partition for example) So basically this fork of Debian is not just a rebrand of Debian, it's somehow more unstable than actual Debian (note that this is based on Debian Stable too)
Developers killed Pardus and this is just a dummy project to avoid any reaction and hate. There is no reason to use this over Debian or any Linux distro.
