TCL vs Clear Linux?
« on: December 25, 2018, 06:37:20 PM »
How would Tiny Core Linux perform, side to side with Clear Linux?
I know Clear linux, the guys of Intel are behind it (the CPU chip manufacturers).
I'm sure it's a very good and stable OS; though with only few good bundles (aka packages).

And while Clear Linux, is very efficiently programmed,
Tiny Core Linux is very minimal; not even having some of the excess Clear Linux has; so I suppose it should at least run equally as quick?

I'm mainly interested in running Folding at home packages.
Reducing latencies of these programs can increase performance marginally; which is why I am looking into TCL for a possible next OS.

I would guess Clear Linux would offer better F@H performance.  It seems to me that Tinycore's speed comes mostly from removing software bloat, which is useful for a responsive desktop experience but that's not what your looking for.
