Democratizing Distro Engineering

Short Form


The Clear Linux Project has some really nifty, fully open source innovations that can help anyone build and maintain unique distros of their own.


Clear Linux for Intel Architecture is a new Linux distribution that aims to showcase Intel Architecture innovations. But standing behind this distro is a team of passionate and committed open source enthusiasts that have produced some very cool innovations that play to the community as a whole. This talk will dive into several innovations and distro-engineering tool chains that the Clear Project has open-sourced, such as fast & secure OS patching, on-demand debugging, automated software packaging, and mixing – which gives users the ability to compose their own OS.

    After a long career as a Unix and Linux system administrator, I joined the Open Source Technology Center at Intel for a ride on the developer side of life. Still finding my way around on that, I’ve been lending my experience to the Clear Linux Project for Intel Architecture.
