    Phoronix: Intel's Clear Linux Already Forging Plans To Land GCC 9 & LLVM 8

    While we have looked extensively at the performance of generated binaries of user-space applications built under GCC 9, soon we'll be able to benchmark a complete system image built under this annual compiler update to the GNU compiler as Clear Linux is planning a quick roll-out of the soon-to-be-released compiler...

    Clear Linux is made by non creative people for non creative people. No Rosegarden and great software synths for example. Boycott intel and make your life and the computing world better.

      So I came here expecting to see some "cool beans, can't wait to see some benchmarks" posts and instead I learned there's an ignore user option in the user settings.

        Meat are made for non-vegan and non animal lovers. No tofu and soy hamburger for example. Boycott meat and make your life and the nutrition world better.

          I've known of it for a while, but for me half the fun of these forums is reading what debianxfce is going to come up with next

          If I want a forum with decent moderation I'll stick to Arch thanks - but that's the great thing about forums, they all cater to a different audience.

            Since when do you care about that kind of software?

              You mean it actually works for you? Please explain how to get it working, as I haven't been able to so far.

                Sweet looking forward to more reading up on more gcc 9 benchmarks. I've also started testing my nginx compiles on Centos 7 with gcc 8.31 and gcc 9.0.1 and clang 8
                Code:
                nginx -V
                nginx version: nginx/1.15.9 (280219-224036-centos7)
                built by gcc 9.0.1 20190224 (experimental) (GCC) 
                built with OpenSSL 1.1.1b  26 Feb 2019
                Code:
                nginx -V
                nginx version: nginx/1.15.9 (270219-034623)
                built by gcc 8.3.1 20190222 (GCC) 
                built with OpenSSL 1.1.1b  26 Feb 2019
                Code:
                nginx -V
                nginx version: nginx/1.15.9 (270219-031926)
                built by clang 8.0.0 (branches/release_80 354893)
                built with OpenSSL 1.1.1b  26 Feb 2019

                  OpenMandriva has similar toolchain plans -- as soon as the 4.0 release is out the door (any day now), clang 8.0 and gcc 9 will land in cooker.

                    ClearLinux doesn't really have a target audience. It's merely a showcase distribution for Intel's performance tweaks.

                    It's only interesting for people like Michael for running benchmarks, for anyone else, it's useless.

                    The average desktop user doesn't need a distribution where every single package is highly optimized for performance as the CPU is idling 95% of the time during normal desktop use anyway (unless you are playing games). On the other hand, established distributions like Fedora, openSUSE and Debian have far more software available in their repositories. So, ClearLinux might be fast but not really useful.

                    And enterprise customers wouldn't touch anything but an LTS or enterprise distribution.
