CLEAR LINUX


This system, supported by Intel, boots faster than any other Linux I have tested and have installed.

It is also very snappy, you click on an icon and immediately, the effect is present--no sluggishness delays.

C/C++ code compiled and tested is smaller than that produced by alternative distros.

The downside... VLC or other for mp4 or mpeg codecs will not allow you full view of email attachments. However, there is no issue with using youtube.

Can it be used as a desktop OS?
