I am an advocate for simplicity when it comes to choosing a familiar OS.
 The fairly new and actively supported Ubuntu-based elementaryOS is
becoming one of my personal favorites.  Unlike PearOS, this one doesn't
suck.  ;-)  It has obvious Mac-inspired features, but doesn't go overboard
trying to become a Mac.

They do try to detach the user from the normal desktop, but you can easily
get it back.
