Hello. I compared Whonix and Debian XFCE in VirtualBox and found that Debian is faster.
In addition, in Debian my system does not freeze if I open many tab in browsers - Chromium, Firefox. Whonix freezes. My tests took place on the same system in equal settings: the number of processor cores, RAM, disable swap for Debian.
I do not want to say bad things about Whonix. I’m just trying to find out why. Perhaps the reason is the additional security settings?
Something else. I am using VirtualBox 6.0.10 for Whonix (I read the BIOS warning). I want to upgrade guest add-ons to 6.0.10. Will such an update have any security risks (other than bios), or will it violate the Whonix architecture? Thanks.
