    There are two different & separate versions of "Clear OS". The Intel operating system: "Clear Linux* OS", with the asterisk punctuation. This seems very different from:
    (2) Clear Linux
    (3) ClearOS (USA)
    (4) Clear Linux OS (New Zealand)
    (5) Clear Linux 27900 (New Zealand, used by Distrowatch)
    (6) Clear Linux 29350 (Intel USA, used by Phoronix)

    "Clear Linux* OS" is a wrong use of "*" (asterisk punctuation). Elsewhere in their Intel web site, they replace the asterisk "*" with the superscript "1". So the correct name should be (4) above: "Clear Linux OS". However this proper name "Clear Linux OS", is very often also written as "ClearOS". "Clear Linux" is quite a very different operating system.

    "Clear Linux OS", based from the nation New Zealand, is based on Fedora, according to Distrowatch. "Clear Linux" comes from Intel, USA, but seems to be "independent". Distrowatch claims of "independent" is very alarming & inconsistent. Both use RPM (Red Hat) package managers, so are NOT independent, relying on RPM packages. According to Distrowatch, the "latest" is Clear Linux 27900. According to Phoronix, the latest is Clear Linux 29350.

    Using Distrowatch, I compared the files inside the two operating systems, Clear Linux 27900 and Intel's ClearOS 7.6.0. Clear Linux 27900 has more user applications, such as Firefox 65.0.1. The "independence" claim is because the RPM-based operating systems cannot be safe with RPM-packages. So "kdenlive.rpm" (a third party video editor) is guaranteed to not run on most RPM-based operating systems. That is why we MIGHT use kdenlive in its appimage format.

    The "Clear" operating system that is the fastest on the Phoronix bench tests seems to be Clear OS, the USA version of the two RPM operating systems. Check the article titled: "Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.0 Benchmarks Against RHEL 7.6, Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS, Clear Linux". Here they are testing Intel "Clear Linux 29350" in their comparison bench tests.

    It seems not at all surprising that this Intel generated operating system usually is the fastest Linux operating system, according to benchmarks. Other Phoronix tests also show that these performance ratings also work just a well with the AMD range of CPU's.
