Hello! I’m curious to know why people use Qubes OS in the first place. It offers many features, but I assume most people want Qubes OS only for a subset of those?
Personally, I’d rather use OpenBSD or NixOS, but Qubes OS offers the following things for me:
- trustable net-vm, so I can run programs with a VPN but not everything, and I can trust it won’t work if the VPN is disabled
- better way to organize my stuff. I don’t like to know my personal files are in the same context than when I develop or do stuff on the internet
- hard to break and easily reproducible, thanks to templates and Salt stack
I barely use disposable it seems very popular among users, that’s why I thought it would be interesting to read about what makes Qubes OS appealing.
