OSNews, Generic OSes "After nearly three years of work, I have a pleasure to announce that Qubes 1.0 has finally been released! [...] I would like to thank all the developers who have worked on this project. Creating Qubes OS has been a great challenge, especially for such a small team as ours, but ultimately, I'm very glad with the final outcome - it really is a stable and reasonably secure desktop OS."

Linux is a kernel, not an OS.

Yes, that's why I repeatedly mentioned "Linux distribution" as opposed to just "Linux".

But when people talk about "Linux" I think it's safe to assume they mean an operating system (with a Linux kernel). When people talk about the Linux kernel they often mention the word kernel anyway.

What we should take away from this is that

1) It's perfectly fine for Qubes to call itself an OS.

2) It's very different from your stock distro, which makes it even finer to call itself an OS. With a Linux kernel.

Now we eat.
