Clear Linux OS (Clear Linux* OS, Clear Linux*) is an open source, rolling release Linux distribution optimized for Intel Architecture, primarily designed with performance, security, customizability and manageability, from the Cloud to the Edge[1]. Clear Linux* OS is a not forked from any other Linux distribution, instead, it is a reference implementation for users to customise it.

History[edit]

The Clear Linux* project begun in 2015 for the Intel Clear Container.

Design and principles[edit]

  • optimizations across the entire stack: kernel, libraries, middleware layers, frameworks and runtime
  • Rolling release model for upsteam Linux kernel version

Stateless design[edit]

The system files are separate from all other user data for easier manageability

Autoproxy[edit]

that makes it possible to operate in some proxy environments without needing to be configured.

telemetry[edit]

optional to helps the Clear Linux* OS team proactively identify and resolve bugs

Installation[edit]

  • run on live desktop, live server, bare metal, Virtual machines, Containers, cloud infrastructure such as AWS, GCP or Azure
  • a GUI installer developed in Go called "Clear Linux* OS Installer" for installation
  • default GNOME desktop environment and GNOME Software installed for desktop ISO version
  • native ext4 file system with Btrfs

Software update[edit]

Unlike other Linux distribution, Clear Linux* OS employs the concept of the Bundles to manage software and dependency. Bundles encapsulate all upstream open-source projects and packages needed to enable a use-case or capability. The custom package manager "swupd" is used for managing Bundles.

Clear Linux* OS also supports Flatpak application virtualization out of the box. A marketplace Clear Linux* Store is the official "app store" to discovery the software (Bundles or Flatpak) available to install.

Clear Linux* OS also supports Docker with the 'containers-basic' bundles installed.

Reference Stacks[edit]

It provides several reference stacks for specific purpose such as Data Analytics, Database or Deep Learning.

Customization[edit]

Clear Linux* OS is a reference implementation, users or developers can build custom Clear Linux* OS derivatives using the tools included in the system called "autospec" and "mixer tools" according to their specific purposes.

System Requirements[edit]

  • an x86 64-bit processor which supports Intel Streaming SIMD Extensions 4.2 (Intel® SSE 4.2)
  • a system that supports UEFI
