What's the reason Qubes OS uses Xen instead of another hypervisor like KVM

I heard about pubes os from a tech channel i follow and i am interested in this very reasonably secure operating system but i came to wonder is their a reason why the pubes team chose xen instead of another hypervisor

In short: we believe the Xen architecture allows for the creation of more secure systems (i.e. with a much smaller TCB, which translates to a smaller attack surface).


Thanks for the response i will read up on this :slightly_smiling_face:

It’s Qubes OS, not pubes.
