Hi there, everybody knows how much hard work it takes to maintain a project like this. Qubes OS is a great project and I know about the downsides of FOSS.
However, I noticed that dom0 is still running on fedora-24, vm-templates upgrades to debian-12 or fedora-34 have to be done by hand and it looks like some qvm-tools depend on python2, which is one piece of old software.
So, I wish to ask, if using outdated and unmaintained software can live up to the standards you want to achieve?
Using read-only filesystems, XEN-virtualisation and iptables to seperate domains seem to me as a very good approach to build a reasonable secure operating system. Actually a perfect setup for people who work with VMs a lot.
Still, it looks to me, the project is dying. An honest feedback would be useful for the Qubes-OS user base. Maybe for the Qubes-OS maintainer and community, also.
