    Hi, in fact, the distribution is just developed by David Tavares. The Deux-Sèvre is not a person but the french region where he lives.

    Looks great, but I’m confuse, do I need to pay for it, or is just a suggest? I’ll try it anyway

      No. It’s completely free. You don’t have to pay anything.

    Hey where can I download the theme’s, and I don’t see the point in coming out with a new distro that just has different themes that can be easily downloaded. I guess it can help those who are completely new. I will never understand why people form their own distributions instead of just helping the original ones. Thank God for Steam which will start helping everyone standardize or die as distributions.

      Gaetano if only it was just a theme. It is a full fledged operating system with many user friendly interfaces built in. You should try a live version. Why is pear OS 8 great to a whole lot of folks is its simplicity by design to mimic if you will OS X. If a user who is been using a mac as their main OS and wasn’t sure if they could handle linux then this would be a great OS to point them towards. They will not have any issues navigating linux as a result. Another good use when the OS X folks realize that their 2007 Mac mini’s wont upgrade to Mavericks and they dont want to shell out $’s to the Apple eco system their machines can be reborn with Pear OS 8 and avoid the unspoken planned obsolescence that Apple planned for them.
      Cheers
