Hello I’m pretty infatuated with security/privacy after being hacked/what’s going on in the world so this OS is calling my name.
I got a new desktop that I am going to upgrade and plan to install Qubes OS on to use as the Whonix gateway. The desktop I am putting together for the workstation will not be similiar spec wise.
My current desktop (gateway) can only upgrade to 32 GB RAM. The workstation I am planning to put together will have 256 GB RAM. This may seem excessive, but I won’t be able to support the plethora of communities I am in without it (TOR node, etc)
Would using a gateway computer with a vast amount of lesser RAM hinder the workstation? Would you tell me the nodes would best be run on the the gateway bc it would be faster, that I should really use the workstation as the gateway and the gateway as the workstation? It’s a hard compromise as I don’t want to leave that computer/my nodes service to the network more vulnerable.
What is optimal?
