I just downloaded PearOS 7 for both its look and the fact that it was linux... Until I thought about it. PearOS is a distro that was made by a french developer. Does it use the kernel that say... Ubuntu would use?

Yes, it looks just like Ubuntu with a different theme and likely it uses the same kernel.

From Distrowatch, Pear Linux is a French Ubuntu-based desktop Linux distribution.
