OK, I am sorry not to be so fast this time. :)

As far as I know, we are doing quite well in Winmodem support as well.
As to Turkish language, we certainly can't compete with a local

OK, your recommendation is clear. Thanks.

It's a recursive abbreviation: ALT Linux Team :)

Yes, we usually do some testing to ensure that upgrading from one
version is possible. However, we are not sure that there will be a
Junior edition of 2.3. The upcoming ALT Linux 2.3 Compact will be
different from Junior as it will be a bit more streamlined and will have
less software choices (which is better for OEM).
But when ALT Linux 3.0 Junior is out, you will probably be able to
upgrade easily :)
