Qubes So thanks to those clever people at the chooselinux podcast I installed the distro called Qubes OS. I’ve been using it, and folks: I like it. I like it a lot. Simply put, the goal here is security and as much of it as possible. And also simplicity, with as much of that as possible too. Qubes is essentially a framework for running a bunch of virtual machines. If you’re familiar with running them already, bad news… you don’t need such skills here.
