My suggestion for improvements to Qubes is to introduce a “1monitor: Qubes + 2monitor: Windows/Linux” mode.
Users are heavily accustomed to Windows or Ubuntu, so why should Qubes hinder those who love Windows above all else?
In this proposed mode, the user would use two monitors. The first monitor would display only Qubes along with the management console, while the second monitor would display Windows in full-screen mode.
The keyboard would be fully responsive only on the second monitor, and pressing the ctr+alt+del sequence would work only on the second monitor. The mouse would also only work on the second monitor, not allowing you to go beyond the second screen.
Moving the mouse to the first screen would require opening the “wall” of the second screen - the user could move to the first screen by pressing a key combination (e.g. esc + F1) and then moving the cursor to the edge of the screen.
The first monitor would display only Qubes manager, along with the top taskbar, of course. Pressing on any of the virtual desktops would switch the window on the second monitor.
Of course, going to monitor1 and then switching desktops with the mouse would not be very convenient. However, the function of switching desktops could be used with a keyboard shortcut.
The above suggestion, in my opinion, is ideal for people who do not like switching. Yes, it can be argued that “Windows is evil,” etc., however, isn’t our premise to eliminate the claim “why use 80% of the benefits of Qubes when I have 20% unavailable”?
Sys-net, sys-usb and many other benefits flow directly to the Windows machine.
What do you guys think about this?
