    Phoronix: Clear Linux Rolls Out Revamped Documentation

    While Arch Linux remains the gold standard for quality Linux documentation, Intel's Clear Linux has rolled out a new documentation web-site to assist new/existing users in making use of this performance-optimized and security-oriented Linux operating system...

    I don't use Arch or Gentoo myself, but love their exceptional documentation. An excellent knowledge base for the Linux community as a whole especially when documentation is often an after-thought to non-existent.

      Ugh, its a Wiki! Don't get me wrong, it is quite effective and a wiki works well as a way to keep up with Linux's mutation. However I more see that as a problem with Linux.

      I much prefer the FreeBSD handbook and to some extent the Gentoo Handbook. I think I prefer documentation that is set in stone (just like I prefer to deal with an OS that is set in stone).

      So far Clear Linux's docs look nice. They do look a little random and sporadic (a little like Debian's or Fedora's) but that could be because the project is young.

      It is also a little bit "cloud / container" based but some of it is very well documented; such as VNC (https://docs.01.org/clearlinux/lates...d-on-your-host). The Wayland kids might want to look away now because they wont really get a decent VNC multi-session solution for another 20 years (once XOrg replaces Wayland again)

        What would it look like, having the documentation for a rolling distro be set in stone?

          Linux is not an OS. Are you talking about kernel documentation?

              Of course I meant Systemd (with a Linux kernel).

              Rolling distros are more for hobbiests, I guess I am purely discussing stable distros or those with conventional snapshots. The software should have a matching version of the documentation suited to it.

                  That's more like it.
