    Phoronix: Clear Linux Further Enhances Its Desktop Installer, Launches Help Forums

    Not only does Intel's Clear Linux distribution offer stellar out of the box performance, but they seem to be making it increasingly user/desktop friendly at this stage. There's been new GUI installer work as well as the launching of their own support forums...

    I wrote a reply that got unapproved, for some reason that I can't understand. But I see your point and it's an interesting one.

    Ah, yes, I see. You mean in the way that Pepsi is furthering Coca-Cola's dominance and Coca-Cola is furthering Pepsi's by both pretending there are no other colas. It's an interesting point, particularly concerning Power. I'm not sure ARM64 is a natural competitor yet.

    I really don't like the Intel/AMD duopoly at all, but at the same time, I really love what Intel is doing for Linux. To be honest and blunt, Linux is the only reason I've been buying Intel. They took us seriously when none of the others did. That's worth something to me. But now that IBM owns Red Hat, it will be very interesting to see what they can come up with.

    Are they dominating the data center? If you mean they're catching up, that's not furthering dominance.

    AMD is furthering their X86 dominance after all in the data center and also in the desktop space on Windows.

    You're increasingly coming across the way I would expect someone to come across if they were trying to parody debianxfce.

    The machine failed in the middle of the PTS script in Ubuntu 19.04. Just started just beeping continuously and loudly. At least now I know it wasn't Clear Linux. Whew!

    Time for a new test donor.

    Any version of PTS in the past number of years does save the results progressively after each individual test run. Does it show up under phoronix-test-suite list-results?

    Well, that didn't go far. The PTS_SAVE_RESULTS_PATH is empty. When I restarted the program, it prompted me as if I was a new user for the first time. I would take this to mean that PTS does not record results immediately after each test in the script. I am pretty sure it was into the 3rd or 4th test when I walked away so we will try this again.
