Pear Linux - Comice OS 4 review

Filed under
Linux

After months of developing and testing, on March 23 David T has finally released Comice OS 4, the last version of Pear OS, a Linux distro that is based on Ubuntu and has the look and feel of Mac OS. Although I've tried the former versions of Pear OS and found them not very usable then, Comice OS 4 is totally different and it really impresses me this time. I downloaded Comice OS yesterday and tried it on my laptop, and here is my review for Comice OS 4.

Look and feel

The first good thing about Comice OS 4 is that unlike the former versions, this time the default language is English instead of French so it will appeal more users. And since Comice OS is inspired of Mac OS, you shouldnt be surprised to know Comice OS looks really like Mac OS. Comice OS 04 uses Gnome3 as the window manager, but unlike Linux Mint, there is only one silver panel at the top of the screen.
