I’m interested to know if running Whonix-Workstation as a StandaloneVM is considered safe. I can’t seem to find any information about this lying around but this is probably my poor search skills.
At face value everything seems to work fine except there is a small issue with sdwdate-gui which can be resolved by adding the ‘anon-vm’ tag to the StandaloneVM. I notice that the StandaloneVM ends up with the ‘whonix-updatevm’ tag which may or may not need to be removed for safe use.
The use case is that I’d like to develop from within Whonix and doing it within an AppVM is quite painful when dealing with software that insists on installing outside the home directory.
If somebody could provide any resources or configuration “gotchas” I would be very thankful. If there is an easier way to develop within Whonix I would also like to know.
