Only 64bit. I really like this distro. Too bad I only have a 32bit laptop. Bummer.
There's a 32bit version kidemuth, check here:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/pearoslinux/files/Pear OS Linux Panther v3.0/
Yeah I tried installing it but I kept getting an error when installing. I had the 32bit version. Not really sure why I kept getting an error. Gave up on it. I do love the lay out and the look of the OS. Very clean and crisp.
I also have the 32-bit version. Initially the installer kept crashing, until I set up a separate boot partition for Grub to be placed near the beginning of the hard disk and below the 137GB mark. It also help to limit the number of partitions in case you are multi-booting. I use Gparted Live CD to do the partitioning in advance, and stop creating new partitions when Gparted gives me error messages.
The dock takes some getting used to, as lots of icons that I took for granted in Ubuntu, e.g. terminal and synaptic package manager, are hidden behind them.
they made kinda over mint with docky and mac look like icons
i didnt install it yet i wish its made on xubuntu xfce base for lower ram
I have it installed dual boot alongside Windows 7.
Nicest distro I've used in a long time, all the familiarity of Ubuntu with a Mac front end.
Couple of menu items are in french, like the Pear OS software store but no show stopper.
Date/calendar months in french too.
Recorded a couple of bugs yesterday with their forum, gmail docklet doesn't work even after account verification and you cannot expand clock to show date/day even with using the gnome-tweak-tool
look very similar to Mac Lion
but what does it change with ubuntu , only the gui?
A poor mock up of Apple,s GUI.
Seems no one can make a decent GUI except copying apple.
That's quite profound! Let's hope Apple keep up their tradition.
by the way the apple here is not very popular , even many skins/theme/gui are similar to ox
maybe windoze bored
It's too Apple for my taste:
i created some i called mixture of windows 7, xp and mac with red apple on it on xfce base distro its light can run under 512 ram with 2gb swap
what should i name
thanks alex c
Pear OS 3.0 review on this site
i like a lot Launchpad
would like if there is something like Launchpad for windows
I'm sure the Windows developers use something, but I doubt they'll let any average Joe on it.
Separate names with a comma.
