Pearl OS Overview

Pearl Linux OS has been available for free download since 12/2014 with our first release simply titled Pearl Linux. It was based on the 14.04 released version of Ubuntu. That release was using the XFCE desktop environment. Since then we now offer the MATE, GNOME, LXDE and soon to come our own DE PearlDE which will be a mix of LXDE and XFCE4 desktops. As of the latest release Pearl OS 3.0 we are now maintaining our own repository on site. Also all tho far from ready, we are working on the new website. The forum ain't pretty but it is up and running for ya all to post any questions you may have.

These days its not that easy to find many distros still using compiz for the desktop effects. Since the start of Pearl over a year ago every release at least has the option to use compiz. When using compiz it does require a bit more of the computer power to run smoothly however I, like many others really do like at least the option to play a little. For newbies to Linux there is a word of caution I'll through out there, if playing around beyond what we setup as default beware you may end up with a computer that simply wont respond at all. For this reason we have a file in your home directory called " Pearl-Compiz-Default-Settings". It's very easy to regain control if you went a bit too far while playing with the more wild effects offered through the compiz window manager.
