PearOS is updated by going back to its origins

Pear OS

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.

    This is puzzling, PearOS was the best distribution I have tried, sadly, it was bought by a large company or at least that was what the creator said on their website, and then disappeared ( The strange thing is that nothing was heard from the company, the OS, the creator. The last version was PearOS 8. My doubt is that if the creator at that time, it seems to me that he is French, is the same one from this distribution.

    It came to contribute the same as the previous user. It is not effective that it was due to lack of developers.
    Owner of Pear OS, David Tavares announced the news on Facebook on 20 January 2014.

    Its future is now in hands of a company who wants to remain anonymous for the moment. The concept has pleased them it and now wants to continue and improve the system for their own products. I can not give a name but it is a very large company well known ...

    The latest Ubuntu LTS is 16.04, information errors throughout the note. If you are going to inform, do it well.

      Have you noticed that you are asking for information that a year ago did not exist?

    This is very common in the world of operating systems, systems and programs, besides that it is very sad that these companies allow themselves to be bought by people who promise to bring it up and all they do is make them disappear, there will always be someone behind this, other companies that see the opportunity to get rid of the competition and do it through others or front companies that, as I said before, all they do is disappear little by little from the market ...
