Like a lot of new migrants from Windows I felt more comfortable with a look alike system and to this end Mandriva 2010 KDE has to be the best looking default desktop available. PCLinuxOS was tempting too and so was Pardus. I really felt that Pardus had gone the extra mile to offer something different but for the life of me I couldn't get it to connect from the live CD. I must have tried a dozen different distros with Ubuntu networking being the easiest to set up but all were possible except Pardus. I eventually managed to get a "connected" icon but nothing would open with Firefox or the email client. No doubt this must be a usual newbie type error so if someone has knowledge of how to do this with Pardus I'd appreciate the help. I need to enter an account name and password for my DSL connection.
