[quote=“peter, post:5, topic:877”]Thank you WhonixQubes!
After your recommendation on using the beta guide to install and decided to try it.
That fixed the previous problems. I’m still not sure what misconfiguration caused the problem, but as long as the beta guide works, I’m satisfied
Let me just end by saying thanks to you, WhonixQubes, and the people involved that make something like this possible. Using your spare time on a project like this really makes me believe in the open source community and the possibility of people claiming their privacy back. Again, thank you :)[/quote]
And we have @nrgaway to thank big time for coming aboard and developing the newest native version of the Qubes + Whonix platform.
Last year, I saw the power of Qubes + Whonix together and decided to dive in and get the project going.
Now, others, especially @nrgaway, have been helping out and this newly combined platform is getting better and better over time.
There are still some fundamental anonymity weaknesses that exist once VMs get hacked or infected, which are similar with most all the other alternative platforms. So not much improvement elsewhere either.
However, the host-level security strength of Qubes beneath your VMs is unmatched by other platforms, and I am working on shoring up as many of the local VM anonymity issues as I can this year, so that we get closer towards the ideal security/privacy/anonymity platform with Qubes + Whonix.
But anonymity over the network on Qubes + Whonix is believed to be as strong as Tor is. Of course, one never has to take my word for anything.
So stay tuned to the Wiki - Forum - Blog as there will be more improvements coming to Qubes + Whonix!
