Getting Started with ClearOS 6
If you just want to kick the tires and give ClearOS a spin, you can use the virtual machine images to get a system up and running. For running ClearOS in a live environment, a full install using the ISO image is strongly recommended (even in a virtual environment). A full install lets you choose disk sizes, partitioning, whole disk encryption and other install-only tunables.
Along with the standard ISO image, ClearOS has specialized downloads available for virtual and cloud environments as well.
The old standby. Use the ISO image to burn a CD or to go through a full install on a virtual machine.
The VMware Enterprise images can be used on many of the enterprise-based products from VMware, including:
The VMware Basic images can be used on the following products:
ClearOS images for VirtualBox can be used on both the open-source and commercial versions.
Images for Microsoft's VirtualPC product are also available.

SVN and CVS are the most useful places to find source code. Well, the relevant ClearOS stuff at least: diffs, logs, comments, etc. You can also find all the source RPMs on the mirrors. The legacy 5.x source RPMs are on legacy servers here.
