Excessive writes to SSD?

Good point. If you can figure out how to install Qubes on a removable drive, that could be an option. Wear out some cheap USB drive instead of the SSD

I guess I can do that but I still end up burning something and I don’t want to burn a USB drive because they’re like low quality flash so they die quickly + SMART monitoring is kind of broken on mine so I can’t predict when they die or whatever
