    Speaking as a past user of Slackware, Suse, RH, and Debian & Ubuntu I do think the Clear Linux packaging system takes some getting used to. However if you are managing a fleet of servers and have several classes of server to support then it should work well. I would not bother to learn it just for one or two machines. Clear, to me, is a server operator's operating system.

    I didn't say that it did have anything in common... but it's still true.

    Now that PopOS 21.04 is out ...just a day after this benchmark. It would have been nice to see if system76 guys are saving hirsute with their special sauce.

    In these server-type benchmarks where computational performance is king & latency just an afterthought, "transparent_hugepages=always" always (see what I did here?) will come out on top of the upstream default of "madvise".

    True but it is nowhere near as dominant as we have seen in the past (I think mainly on Intel systems).

    That is the case... and is kind of the whole point.

    Um, the comparison is missing Gentoo...
    SCNR.
    *escapes laughing*

    But interesting anyway, so people can check for common workloads they might have similar to a benchmark and then choose distribution.
