Gnome Boxes -- Viable platform for Whonix?


I see a couple of posts anticipating the Gnome Boxes – the simplified virtualisation platform for qemu-kvm – but find no mention of whether it can actually support Whonix. Though very basic, the Boxes graphic interface seems fine to run a simple OS. Can Whonix be setup in Gnomes Boxes? Are there any experiences or performance results to discuss? Just curious …


There was much anticipation because of improved UX - we thought it would gain VBox-like simplicity in importing VMs instead of using the commandline. It didn’t the last time I looked which is a while ago. Also I’m not sure if it enforces Apparmor for VMs.
