ClearOS Community 6

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.
