Fixing the Desktop Linux Security Model Whonix is a security, privacy and anonymity focused Linux distribution. Recently, we’ve been focusing a lot on important security hardening measures and fixing architectural security issues within the desktop Linux security model. Any Linux distribution can be affected by these issues. The Issues There is a common assumption that Linux is a very secure operating system.

It is true. Linux kernel has become bloated :(

A few weeks ago I’ve started playing with FreeBSD (again) and OpenBSD. This week I thought : Let’s use OpenBSD for critical work/personal things on one computer. And do less critical things on Linux computers.

However one good solution is to use Qubes OS.

Qubes OS can be a good solution probably, given good enough hardware. For people with older hardware, the BSD family is likely a good choice.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
