If you favor the OS X environment, Pearl OS might be a Linux distro to feed your fancy.
Pearl OS is a revival of the discontinued Pear OS distro. It picks up where Pear left off in early 2014. Pearl OS has two desktop versions: XFCE and MATE. Both are based on Ubuntu Linux distro version 14.04 Mini release. The two flavors of Pearl OS are customized to look and act like the OS X operating system. But Pearl is Linux and not OS X. This distro runs Debian-based Linux applications. It does not run OS X software or have actual OS X functions.

I downloaded and burnt Pearl to a USB key. It is a very nice Distro, quite lightweight and fast. Well worth giving it a try.

No that much - the wireless connectivity is found and needs manual setup to complete the connectivity. None of the distros found that much difficulty - this is basic.
Frequent disappearance of Docky menu at the bottom !!.

Much more to improve, not enough with cosmetic look. The elementary OS much better when compare to Pearl OS, Pear OS also looks same
