looks like there is a community fork of Pardus now active. Pardus always seemed to be a real polished KDE distro, so this would nice to see.

Yep. I saw that on Distrowatch and I'm very pleased to see that Pardus will continue without the Turkish government. While that page is entirely in Turkish some of the linked pages are in other languages (German, English, etc...) and there clearly is an international community behind this move. It's good to see. Pardus was one of the most user friendly distros out there and it was painful to see the Turkish government abandon it.

There is also a commercial version in development by a private Turkish company so instead of one Pardus we'll now have two.

Pardus was a really nice distro. I've been using it for some time, only to see its development stopped special thanks to some newly appointed creationist at the head of the Ministry. Pity.

So thumbs up for the community version. Maybe you can translate the whole site into several languages?

I don't speak/read Turkish so I can't do any such thing.
