DistroWatch.com: Clear Linux

Clear Linux

Last Update: 2017-01-03 19:28 UTC


Clear Linux is a minimal distribution primarily designed with performance and cloud use-cases in mind. The operating system upgrades as a whole rather than using individual packages. Extra software can be added to the system (along with associated dependencies) using pre-compiled bundles which can be accessed through the distribution's swupd software manager.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 274 (19), 6 months: 214 (39), 3 months: 141 (78), 4 weeks: 184 (43), 1 week: 182 (41)

Average visitor rating: 8/10 from 1 review(s).

Table Notes and Explanations

(Please refer to the table below.)
  • Select view:
  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "kdelibs" and "plasma-desktop" packages and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

Clear Linux is very minimal, designed for servers and cloud deployments. Not a lot of tools available out of the box, but very high performance and easy package management.

Distro offers a rolling release operating system, everything updates as one big bundle of packages.
