We have built and uploaded the first ever working Qubes Live USB image! It’s based on the recently released 3.0-rc2 release. Now you should be able to
run and try Qubes OS of any laptop without needing to install it anywhere!
Qubes is an open-source operating system designed to provide strong security for desktop computing using Security by Compartmentalization approach. Qubes is based on Xen, the X Window System, and Linux, and can run most Linux applications and utilize most of the Linux drivers.
This new live USB image should make it a lot easier to give Qubes a go.
