As far as making install/config easier… Not officially, no. Not at this time.
For the future…
- I am working on an independent project that may help make things a bit easier.
- Qubes devs have mentioned the future possibility of integrating Whonix into Qubes official installer / user interface.
Once installed, it basically does work like VirtualBox right now, except for the VMs being based on a base TemplateVM.
But the TemplateVM makes generating new active Whonix VMs much easier as well as keeping them all updated much easier.
And the OpenPGP file verification of Whonix is done automatically in the Qubes template install process too, which saves time.
Not to mention file transfers, much easier and secure.
While new to Qubes, it might be a bit disorienting and seem harder than VirtualBox.
Once you get the hang of it, I think it is easier overall.
But also remember that Qubes is a bare metal operating system, so you are replacing all the maintenance of Windows/Mac/Linux with Qubes as the base OS. All that base Qubes OS stuff is separate from Whonix.
That’s my general understanding. But if there is something specific you are noticing, I’d be happy to consider it further.
