Qubes OS

Qubes is apparently being revamped in version 4 (see this article). I thought it worthy of posting because Jason made a presentation on Qubes at the February PLUG meeting.

Thanks. I scanned the official announcement at the Qubes website. Admittedly, I don't understand a lot of what they're talking about other than that it will be more secure and more flexible for making domains. And a better design. Will have to check it out sometime. I wonder if anybody in our group has tried Qubes yet.
