Pear OS resembles elementaryOS, not only because they're both OS X styled, but also for they have both created simple lightweight applications aiming simplicity and usefullness. But until now Pear OS has achieve only half of elementaryOS' popularity (as measured by distrowatch), but this may change soon.
At Pear OS' website, there is now a countdown, pretty much like elementaryOS had on August, before the release of Luna.
At distrowatch, Pear OS is defined as:
a French Ubuntu-based desktop Linux distribution. Some of its features include ease-of-use, custom user interface with a Mac OS X-style dockbar, and out-of-the-box support for many popular multimedia codecs.So... we're also curious, but wait a short while and come back on November 8 to see what's new, good and bad in Pear OS 8!
