Microsoft adds Clear Linux to its Azure

Clear LInux Logo

Microsoft's Azure service continues to grow the list of available operating systems. The last to do so was Clear Linux, an operating system created especially for Intel processors. This operating system joins other systems already included in Azure, such as Ubuntu, OpenSUSE or Red Hat among many others.

ClearLinux was added to the Azure marketplace, so that any user of the platform can access it easily and thus benefit from all the free-to-use tools that this operating system has.

The platform allows you to use three different versions of Clear Linux, each with its own utility and functionality. The first version is the basic version, a "clean" version in which we will have to install everything from scratch (hence the name Clear Linux), something very useful for anyone who wants a fully customized operating system.

However, as the basic option can be too complicated for novice usersMicrosoft has also included a container version in which a large number of programs and packages have been included, to avoid having to configure everything from scratch.

Finally we have the Machine Learning version, which, as its name suggests, offers open source tools in order to learn how to handle and configure an operating system with these characteristics.

Without a doubt, news that at this point it is not surprising, since Microsoft is more and more involved in the Linux community and the times of «Linux is a cancer»It seems that they have already come to an end.

If you would like to know more about this project, you can do it by visiting the official Microsoft Azure page in the section ClearLinux. Here you also have the instructions that you must follow to start managing this fabulous operating system in Microsoft Azure.

    What is really important is the free term but associated with OPEN CODE. OPEN is not the same, a closed package that we do not know what it contains.
    Open Source!!
