Pear OS 8, The Mac OS X Imitation, Will Launch In 2 Days

/ 6 years ago


While I am not a great fan of Apple products or Mac OS X, this is a familiar story among many consumers – you want a Mac OS X device but you simply have nowhere near the amount of money to afford it. What’s your next best option? Well Pear OS 8 of course!  Pear OS 8 is the eighth incarnation of the Pear OS which is essentially an Apple Mac OS (X) imitation operating system. Pear OS 8 has been going through the stages of its beta testing for a while now but in just 2 days the new OS will be made available to consumers from its official website.

Of course Pear OS cannot brand itself as a Mac OS X imitation but the similarity is pretty darn obvious. Pear OS will be distributed in 32 and 64 bit versions and contains a whole bunch of unique features such as My Pear, Pear Security, Pear Contacts, Pear Cloud and Pear Updater. The overall consensus of Pear OS 8 is that the operating system has come on leaps and bounds since the early days of the Pear OS. If you’re looking to get on board with Linux, but have a soft spot for Mac and Apple OS X, then Pear OS 8 could be for you.
