Pear OS Is No Longer Available For Download


Pear OS is a French Ubuntu-based desktop Linux distribution with the Mac OS X-style.

Today from Google+ update by the creator of Pear OS David Tavares,:

Pear OS is no longer available for download.

Its future is now in hands of a company who wants to remain anonymous for the moment. The concept has pleased them it and now wants to continue and improve the system for their own products. I can not give a name but it is a very large company well known …

I want to thank all users, moderators and other developers who have made Pear OS it is today, that without this adventure would not have been possible.

I’m going in another direction.

Another big thank you to all and I hope to return to the scene of open source very quickly.

    Most sites are repeating this report with the addition that Pear was sold. The notice on the site does not say that, though. Since no one, yet, seems to be doing any actual news gathering about this, it seems just as likely that something else is going on.
