Qubes OS: A reasonably secure operating system

Qubes OS is a highly secure operating system that offers compartmentalization and Operating System Freedom. It uses the Xen hypervisor, providing the same level of security relied on by major hosting providers while allowing users to run multiple operating systems on the same device. The system also offers serious privacy, with Whonix integrated to allow for anonymous internet use. Qubes OS has received praise from individuals and organizations alike, including Edward Snowden and the Freedom of the Press Foundation. The system is constantly updated and new releases, like version 4.1.2, are often made available. Qubes virtual mini-summit 2021 and Qubes Air are two research initiatives currently underway.
