The Clear Linux Project for Intel Architecture is a project that is building a Linux OS distribution for various cloud use cases. The goal of Clear Linux OS is to showcase the best of Intel Architecture technology, from low-level kernel features to more complex items that span across the entire operating system stack.

Don't dismiss it - Intel is doing a lot of interesting under-the-hood stuff with this one.

I was always intrigued how AMD often presented clever architectures that should have outmatched their competitors, yet Intel almost always replied with 'dirty' hacks that indeed rendered their processor faster, if not more power efficient.

If only AMD drivers were better and more 'open', at least they would have a positive point :/

BTW, three of my five PCs have AMD processor in them (Athlon XP, A8-3500M, E350) the other two are C7 and Atom 330 ;) Yeah, I'm not a power monger...

It seems like AMD is less expensive for desktops, but the performance has much to be desired. I just resorted to buying my first Intel desktop processor since 1998. I couldn't justify the outlay for an AMD, given the performance.
