Thank you for your friendly attitude towards our distributions. I really 
hope that you will like Junior once you download and install it!

You certainly can. The first ISO image of Junior contains everything 
(well, maybe almost everything) you need for the everyday home and 
office tasks. You will only need the second image of Junior if you 
intend to build & develop software yourself. But if you are going to use 
Sisyphus, I really doubt that you will ever need it.

Thank you, a review in Turkish is a great idea! And you are right: we do 
not yet have many people in our international community, even though we 
really deserve more popularity. Currently, our team is working on this 
problem, and you may expect every new distribution to be more 
'international' than the previous.

We are also seriously considering all propositions for international 
partnership, so if any of our readers wishes to join our business and 
spread ALT Linux in his country/region, he is welcome to contact me. 
There are several possible partnership schemes, and I will be glad to 
send more details upon request.
