I'm itching to get hold of Pardus2011 at the moment which although KDE has pinched enough of Gnome's network manager to suggest it may even run with MC's famous modem

At the moment, local issues here resulting from the disaster mean the main net is down for most of the day. There is no HSDPA service for the modem to connect to, only dial-up speed via GPRS, and the problem with Pardus is that you need a 1.3GB live download to test it and then another 1.1GB download for the install disk Guess I better wait for a full speed connection
Thank you for the Pardus information. Have checked out Youtube

Looks like Gnome killer?

Will download definitely soon

KDE 4.x really killed the desktop for me. It is full of bloat :-/

Installed new Gnome (PPA) yesterday, it's not doing it for me. It feels to much like a add on. I would then rather use Unity. In fact just stay with older gnome...
