Wow, #QubesOS is way more usable once I upgraded my laptop to 40GiB of RAM.
This is not okay. None of this is okay.
Only having a choice between:
- running an OS that runs fast, has GPU acceleration available for applications, does not drain my battery like there's no tomorrow, and does not require stupid amounts of RAM,
- running an OS that is perhaps reasonably secure…
…is simply not acceptable.
Not the least because that choice is only even available to people who can afford 40GiB of RAM.
@rysiek I'm a big fan of the Qubes separation model, less of a fan of the "run heavy weight Linux installations in each VM" model. It seems like there should be a modern design using KVM and a lightweight immutable control domain, a video domain with GPU pass through, and firecracker/unikernels for the various helper VMs.
Small moves, I guess.
