Years ago, the Pear OS distribution went online, a distribution that, in addition to having the name of a fruit, had the appearance and function of Mac OS. This distribution was abandoned for lack of developers and was picked up by the PearOS team which tried to create a distribution equal to Pear OS, that is, a Gnu / Linux distribution that tries to mimic the style and operation of Mac OS.
But the result was not very convincing for traditional Pear OS users, at least so far. A few hours ago it came out Pear OS 9.3, a version that recovers the essence of the old versions without standing out from them. Also this new version is based on the latest Ubuntu LTS distribution, that is to say, in Ubuntu 14.04.4, the latest Ubuntu distribution with Long Support.
PearOS 9.3 follows in the wake of Elementary OS
For those who are interested in the Linux world, don't worry because what you see is nothing more than an adaptation of Gnome Shell with an icon theme similar to Mac OS and a dock similar to the Apple dock. Even so, it must be recognized that the PearOS project is not very consolidated and that means that we only have one Facebook page and one sourceforge account where you can find the installation image.
PearOS 9.3 is a pretty solid operating system and with a nice eyecandy, but in the end it is still an Ubuntu with an interface similar to Mac OS, as well as Elementary OS or other distributions. This may be why the support is minimal, although those who have thoroughly tested this distribution state that PearOS 9.3 is a great operating system with great appeal for many users moving from Mac OS to Gnu / Linux.
