    If I understand this correctly...
    You need to look into it more deeply.  I suggest the white papers on the QubesOS site to start, if you really have an interest - and the developer's Google Groups I linked to above.  Rutkowska's blog (Invisible Things) is filled with information.

    I'd stick around, but it's been an all-nighter.  And going to the source is usually the best bet anyway, isn't it?

    It ain't called paranoia - when they're really out to get you. 6 points.

    •  OK, but I did go there and read a bit first (1+ / 0-)

      One of the first things that struck me was this:

      Qubes, however, does not attempt to provide any security isolation for applications that run within the same domain. E.g. a buggy web browser running in one of the Qubes domains could still be compromised just as easily as on regular Linux OS.

      So, please tell me what else I need to understand. Based on what I've read so far, I really don't have enough interest in this to do a major research project on it.
