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!
We’ve talked about Qubes before, but since it’s been a while, here’s a quick primer:
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.
This is a very interesting project, its great to see it mentioned here. Let us hope they allow for some persistence in the near future with a r/w partition.
