There is a lot of interest in using Qubes instead of tails. The general idea being that one virtual machine is used to get documents from the journalist interface. The documents are then decrypted and stored in another virtual machine.
I wonder if someone is already using Qubes in this way ? It is not recommended because the implications of having a virtual machine instead of an airgap hardware have not been evaluated. But maybe someone did it anyway
That would give us first hand experience of what the pain points are. Kushal used the Qubes 4.x release candidate and we learnt it’s still too raw to be usable. But what about Qubes 3 ? Could we maybe use it right now and be happy about it ?
