Pear Linux Comice OS 4 screen shot preview

Pear Linux is a relatively new community project that publishes several versions of Linux desktop distributions. The projects first “stable” release, Pear Linux Panther 3, was a horde of bugs, and was soon put back in beta mode.

During that time, the distribution was renamed to Comice OS, and the first stable edition, Pear Linux Comice OS 4, was released on March 23. There was a standard desktop edition and another designed solely for netbooks. Also released was the first beta KDE edition. You may view screen shots of the netbook edition at

While I am still working on a review of the standard and netbook editions, here are a few screen shots from a test installation of the standard edition. Look for screen shots of the netbook edition in a separate article.
Update: You may view screen shots of the netbook edition at Pear Linux Comice OS 4 Netbook screen shot preview.

Though Pear Linux Comice OS 4 is based on Ubuntu, its graphical package manager is borrowed from Deepin Linux, another desktop distribution also based on Ubuntu. This is the main view of Pear Appstore, as it is called.
