Support Pear OS 8 Tablet Edition

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Pear OS an Ubuntu derivate that uses a customized version of Gnome Shell, called Pear Shell and has a design inspired by Mac OS X. Pear OS 8 has been released yesterday, but David Tavares, the main developer of Pear OS has bigger plans than that.

David has also created an IndieGoGo campaign, in order to raise €10,500 in 42 days, money needed for developing Pear OS Tablet 8 Editon RT (ARM) and Pear OS 8 Pro Tablet Edition (x64), two Pear OS operating systems specially optimized to work on the Microsoft Surface tablets, a tablet that has been created for Windows 8.

Support Pear OS 8 Tablet Edition

Until now, Ubuntu versions that have UEFI support have been experimentally ported on Microsoft tablets, but they don’t behave well enough to be usable for daily tasks.

Since €10.5000 in 42 days is a reasonable amount of money, this campaign has good chances. This could be the rise of the Linux / Ubuntu systems in the tablet market. via
