    I am just now seeing some press about Intel's Clear Linux distribution - https://clearlinux.org/ I'm not ready to move on past Linux Mint by any means, but found this release a bit interesting.

    Also, here's some press about the distribution:

    Meet The Linux OS From Intel That’s Beating Windows 10 And Ubuntu — On AMD Hardware

    - Looking for a Linux distribution that’s performance-optimized for your AMD processor?

    - In a recent battery of benchmarks performed on a $199 laptop from Walmart, Ubuntu proved 15-percent faster than the default Windows 10 installation, but then Clear Linux blew both Ubuntu and Fedora out of the water.

    Well for me instant fail. Telemetry in Linux. Maybe you can opt out now, but in later version who knows.

    GPU support was pretty bad last time I looked into this.

    Ubuntu telemetry is easily disabled, right?

    That it was ever there in the first place is the concern.
