Hi, I’m Mike I’ve been happily using Clear Linux for almost a year now. The performance on Clear Linux is incredible and glad to see there is a community of people that feel the same way.
Clear Linux OS is my Favorite ! I
I have used most of the popular distributions beginning from slackware, . Intel’s Clear Linux OS is the most stable & fastest distribution, in my opinion , in terms of boot up time , system, & applications response. Obvious, that the OS is optimized for Intel CPUs. I rate the os maximum not because it is the fastest but it has many features as mention in the web site like
- Software distributed as Bundles rather than as Packages
- Stateless OS
- File Size of updates
- Different approach in Installation / Partitioning & Boot loader (clr-boot manager instead of Grub)
All these efforts & many more optimizations has made the OS the more stable & usable
Whereas other linux distributions that I tried earlier worked well until installation of new package installation. Conflicting libraries, dependencies, would make applications to break.
The OS fundamentals all together have improved Overall stability to a good extent.
With improved Linux drivers, I believe, Clear Linux has all the potential to become leading Desktop OS
