Qubes OS Media Coverage Megathread

One major blooper in the “I hate this” video is at 4:52 he seems to think the applications screen actually enables and disables or even removes apps; really all it does is put the apps into the menu (or not). The apps are still there, providing potential attack surface.

Towards the very end he talks about how if he wants to run a virtual machine he just runs it. As If we don’t do that. Can’t understand the point he’s trying to make there.

Also the experience is a bit different when you run off a usb drive.

For me the quoted link is to the comment section on “Hacker News”, while @solene’s link is to the article. The article can also be opened from the comment section, but requires clicking on a perhaps not so obvious link on that page.

Oops, I didn’t notice, sorry

No worries!

Very interesting. There seems to be some IT-companies using Qubes for their consultants.

I’d love to convince more companies to do so :wink:
