    Forgot to mention – it is now a ‘final’ both 32-bit and 64-bit and there is a netbook edition but there are still issues with overheating due to Linux Kernel writers not being able to address this issue – suspect change in patented hardware could be an issue?

    The website has changed – download links will be from the pages here:

    There were some issues with the Deepin software center but never had any issues with 2.2 – have upgraded to 2.5. Deepin allows rebranding from what I can gather that is all that is different. Looking good so far!

    Hi everyone, don’t know about where things have come from but David is doing quite a good job so far, along with 20 Devs. It has been taken off general distribution for the Devs to do Beta Testing before Alpha is released, probably sometime April. I believe the desktop is Pantheon (well I thought 3 was anyway) and it is based on Ubuntu (but nicer in my opinion. I like it so much I contributed a Wallpaper for it based on free image on the net and free text on the net. I don’t know about the above desktop image but the official Comice OS4 Wallpaper is a picture of a Dandelion bottom left with Dandelion seeds blowing in the wind – the seed being the Comice logo of a bitten pear. It is so refreshing to see a nice desktop. My advice to the reviewer (as you probably don’t visit the forum!) is after install before anything else run ‘sudo apt-get update’ before using the App Store. Enjoy!

      At first I thought, its something wrong on my end, I’m not at home with FIOS, instead I’m in Florida with XFINITY,so the issue with this download got me. Then I checked it out elsewhere and found out it was another poorly developed Ubuntu derivative. Being something of a distro junkie, you could say I was disappointed.
      And VISION should always be clear..

    Hey how can anyone comment on something that is not available in the USA. If any available links to download can be found that actually work, it takes all day AND its not a usable image. Where did you reviewers got a working copy from.? I’m waiting for a reply..

      Looks like the developer has taken Comice 4 images offline.

      You may download Pear OS 3 at here.

    For everyone thinking that is Deepin’s and etc… it is. Pear OS really takes almost all the stuff included and just re brand it as their own. Heck, I bet they didn’t even design that background, they probably just stuck their logo on it.

      If the Deepin software manager is published under an open source or free software license, then it is perfectly ok for Pear’s developer, or any other developer, to rebrand or even fork it.
