|We dive once more into the magical world of "The Twilight Zone (LDD): There is Linux beyond Ubuntu." This time we share a tour of Pear Linux, a distro with Mac OS X flavor.|
Pear OS is a new Linux distribution with attractive features that includes built-in similar elements from MacOS Lion (Apple) and whose distinctive logo corresponds to a Pear, which makes the comparison in relation to the Apple emblem of the apple very funny. .
If you are used to Mac OS X, it may be the right step to try Linux.
The applications it contains are basic: firefox, clementine, totem, shotwell, libreoffice, skype and little else. But it's easy to quickly install the more "advanced" applications: gthumb, gimp, openshot, and so on.
Pear Linux main features
- Intel Pentium III 500 MHz or higher
- 512 MB RAM (1GB recommended)
- 8 GB hard drive
- 800 × 600 minimum resolution (recommended is 1024 × 768)
Based on: Debian / Ubuntu
Desktop environments: it comes in 3 versions: GNOME, KDE and one specially developed for netbooks. As a negative point, the download is greater than 700 MB, so it can only be executed from a LiveUSB or a LiveDVD, which can be bad news for those who do not have a DVD reader.
Package system: DEB, it comes with its own AppStore.
Installation: comes with a graphical wizard to make installation very easy.
Supports Spanish: yes.
Multimedia support: multimedia codecs are already installed.
64 bit support: each version comes in 32 and 64 bits.
