Another One Bites the Dust

It's amazing how fast companies can come and go. They seem to be going even faster. It seems just like yesterday I was telling you that Pears OS,  a Mac OS X clone based on Linux, was bought by an unknown and closed down. The same has just happened to what was intended to be a spiritual successor to Pear OS. Brenden Gonzalez recently started work on Clementine OS, which had the same goal as Pear OS. Unfortunately, before he could begin work, Brenden was contacted by the still known company that bought Pear OS and threatened with legal action if he did not desist. Whoever is planning to use the Pear OS name is already doing all they can to squash all copiers. Sounds a lot like Apple.
