On the VM Live-Mode docs, it clarifies that " This is only available in Non-Qubes-Whonix ™."
First off, great work on the Live Mode!
I’d appreciate some clarity on how it differs from a disposable Whonix Workstation Qube. Perhaps adding a comparison table to the Live-Mode docs would be warranted as well?
My guess is that they share a baseline of non-persistence, but the differences are:
- The possibility of Gateway non-persistence, though this is likely undesirably due to wanting to maintain the same Guard Node (though maybe this is achievable with making sys-whonix in Qubes disposable?)
- Live-Mode has the option of Read-Only disk access whereas this isn’t the case in Qubes (?)
- Qubes can’t eliminate all clearnet traffic as per the differences listed between Whonix-Host and Qubes-Whonix
Thank you for any clarification, and solid work!
