Like most of the other Linux OS, Pear Linux is free to use. Since it is based on Ubuntu, it is easy to use with lost of applications available (from Ubuntu repository) and thus creates a good environment for beginners.

The operating system does not demand a high end hardware but it is only available for 64 bit processor.
