This is just to let potentially interested people know that there is now a new Qubes OS room on matrix which is part of the +cybersec:matrix.org community. The rules for this group are simple, have a (qubes-ish) question, ask a (qubes-ish) question or take it to #cybersec-offtopic. In general the main rule is don't be a D*ck (not duck in case you were wondering, ducks are fine).
Some reasons/examples of why Qubes might be of interest:
It is a privacy security focused system based on the Xen bare-metal hypervisor
It is open source and meant for everyday desktop/laptop daily-driver, not necessarily for servers
The VMs are based on "templates" which reduces attack surface, allows all of your VM programs etc to reside in one template instead of a full VM (only the home dir is persistant when you create a VM since all the programs are loaded from the template), spinning up new VMs is as simple as "new VM"! and for updates only the template needs to be updated and all the VMs based on that template will then be up to date as well.
The compartmentalization allows one to use Split GPG, dm-crypt, ssh, and bitcoin wallets.
It allows for the use of "Disposable VMs", based on any of the above distros that you have setup, that self destruct upon being closed (similar to Tails, though you can run a disposable Tails VM as well!)
And many more reasons. The room welcomes all, if you are a noob come ask a question, if you are a guru (not even necessarily with Qubes but maybe distro or application specific) please come and help add to the knowledge base! One of the main goals here is to have flexible and civil support/discussions related to Qubes.
Hope to see you all there! PS Apologies to the mods if you do not consider this appropriate, I reviewed the rules and think its ok? My reasons for cross posting is that I think Qubes has a very real use case for this subreddit so I thought it would be useful for users in these subreddits and hopefully helpful for Qubes users as well.
Looking for a specific distro just for a cryptocurrency laptop
I have a thinkpad I've used to learn some pentesting and general fun stuff. It was really neat, but now I want to use the laptop now that my course is completed. I'd like to make sure I can wipe my system clean, and then run a simple linux distro that I can reliably use for my Bitcoin wallets. It'd be nice to be able to use firefox with some good privacy extensions, ledger wallet software, and trezor wallet software.
