Clear Linux: the distro that hides nice secrets


ClearLinux is a Linux distro designed to work both on the desktop, in the cloud and on the edge. The developers have paid special attention to its design and manageability. Now, some improvements in this operating system position it as one of the most powerful for 2022. In fact, it could be a great alternative to CentOS after changes in its development ...

Some benchmarks They are doing very well to Clear Linux compared to other distributions. Of course, it is a creation of Intel and is optimized for Intel platforms, where it performs better and is more efficient. Perhaps this optimization for only one hardware is its biggest drawback, since the kernel, AVX512 libraries, middleware layers, frameworks, and binaries compiled specifically for Intel chips.

Clear Linux OS strengths

In addition to the performance and efficiency, design, and ease of management of Clear Linux, the distro has other points to keep in mind. Some are:

  • Integrated tool to check vulnerabilities from CVEs automatically and periodically.
  • Easily customizable and easy to maintain.
