Clementine OS, Resurrection Of PearOS : Mac OS X Clone.

Clementine OS is a new Ubuntu based distribution which will be developed on top of famous PearOS that aims to provide user experience similar to that of Mac OS X. David Tavares, developer & founder of PearOS reported closure of its development in Google+ few days ago. David mentioned in his Google+ post that the project has been sold to the company that has chosen to remain anonymous. Today it's been revealed that the anonymous company was none other than Clementine, the famous music player development team.

    Whoa, nice! I was quite disappointed when I heard that some company has bought PearOS and David Tavares said he wont work on it anymore, but it looks like it's in safe hands.

    You know, I never liked the idea of OS X clone. So, I never cared much about PearOS. However, PearOS did great job in making people switch from OS X/Windows to Linux. I could see in community of PearOS, that most users were newbie linux users & that was good sign because PearOS did its job in helping people switch from closed source to opensource.

    PearOS is an example of how customizable linux based distros are! I am not sure whether Clementine team will be able to maintain distro like David managed to.
