Qubes OS - February 29 and March 7 2020

Thanks to Clayton McSchykles for putting this together.

Thanks once more for a fantastic show! This week’s stream covered the conclusion of our journeys with Intel’s Clear Linux, as well as answering some questions from some community members and a discussion about Ubuntu hate and speculate on why we see it so much. You can watch the stream back here! https://youtu.be/MStvf_wRoBw

There will also be an audio-only version of the stream available here!

This week’s distro challenge is Qubes OS! Qubes OS is a “resonably secure operating system” according to their landing page and focuses on task isolation using Xen-based virtualization technologies. (They even have a fancy graph! (https://www.qubes-os.org/attachment/site/qubesosdiagram.png)) Feel free to give Qubes OS a shot and let us know how it goes throughout the week here on Telegram, on our Discord (https://discord.gg/RVaGCEF), our Discourse (https://discourse.bigdaddylinux.com/), or next week on the livestream! Join us in Zoom or in YouTube chat! There is a Torrent download available! Be sure to give that a shot if possible to help reduce server load and potentially speed up downloads for yourself and other users!

According to https://www.qubes-os.org/doc/installation-guide/

“Qubes OS has very specific system requirements. To ensure compatibility, we strongly recommend using Qubes-certified hardware. Other hardware may require you to perform significant troubleshooting. You may also find it helpful to consult the Hardware Compatibility List.”
