Pardus Corporate 2 beta review

tasman

PardusPardus Corporate 2 is the corporate (professional) edition of Pardus, the Linux distribution developed and maintained by the National Research Institute of Electronics and Cryptology (UEKAE), Turkey. This is the first beta, released on December 13. The final release will be made available on February 16, 2011 (see the release schedule). This article presents a cursory review of this beta release, and because the re-designed management tools in Pardus Corporate will also feature on Pardus 2011, this (review) will also give you a pretty good idea of what to expect on Pardus 2011, which is slated to be released on January 20, 2011.

Installation: Pardus Corporate is not a live distribution. The installation program is the redesigned YALI, which has a very beautiful interface. One of the nicest features of YALI is that it can be restarted without the computer being rebooted. Comes in handy if the installer freezes or you need to restart the installation for any reason.

Pardus Corporate uses LVM, the Linux Logical volume Manager, as the default disk partitioning scheme. Disk space allocation to the /boot partition and the logical volumes is similar to Fedora’s – a non-LVM boot partition of 500 MB and three logical volumes (/, /home and swap). Ext4 is the default file system type. Disk encryption, full disk or per-partition-level, is not supported.

Desktop: Unlike the standard Pardus edition, which ships with KDE 4, Pardus Corporate ships with KDE 3.5 (specifically, KDE 3.5.10)
Cdesktop

All the usual set of KDE system tools and utilities are available from the menu.
Cdesktop4

On logging in for the first time, Kaptan, an application that enables you to customize the desktop is launched. Kaptan is similar to Linux Mint‘s mintWelcome, but with more useful, desktop customization-specific features.

Kaptan provides four menu styles options.
Ckaptan1

On this step of running Kaptan, all the options are off by default, I think this should be enabled out of the box, with a reasonable setting, say, update checking once per day.
