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, a netbook edition, and a KDE edition. The KDE edition is in first beta.

Screen shots from a test installation of the main edition have already been published (see Pear Linux Comice OS 4 screen shot preview. This article provides some screen shots from a test installation of the netbook edition.
