Clear Linux

Last Update: 2019-05-15 00:39 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: 119 (81), 6 months: 100 (114), 3 months: 93 (136), 4 weeks: 62 (162), 1 week: 51 (196)

Average visitor rating: 8.24/10 from 17 review(s).

Ok, I'm a stupid newbie, and I try many distros like Ubuntu, Fedora, Deepin, etc. Clear Linux is the really clear, intuitive, and easy to use. Desktop installation ISO contains soft what I want, during installation you can choose others bundles (like soft packages). If you want install anything just type in terminal "sudo swupd bundle-add python3", and python3 environment installed, or use a GUI Software Package Manager. CLOS easy to use, and look glance :)
PS Version - 30040 (not listed above)
PPS Rating 9 - because Flatpak (another way to get packages) is not friendly yet.

Pros:
- Fast

Cons:
- Does not install to non-UEFI
- Does not allow to create own partition scheme with other filesystem than ext4, so it is not possible to install to btrfs or xfs
- Did not boot after install to external USB HD
- Did not install to free partition on internal HD, required to repartition (erase) whole disk

Surprisingly fast, and an absolute joy to use. The software manager "swupd" is snappy and I love that it's a rolling release. I'll be following this distro very closely!
