So many wonderful promises …
I - really - wanted to believe it but I had to finally accept the reality: Qubes is not ready, I am not ready to live this dream today.
On paper, the material I have at my disposal corresponds to the imperatives necessary to fulfill this dream but, despite all my best will, all my efforts and these dozens of hours spent translating this technical English, trying to understand and implement, all this research to benefit from the experience of others and to manage without once again drowning the creators under my beginner’s questions, I had to give up reluctantly, for a while.
Between the unrecognized printer, although present, I tried of course different ways to make them communicate Qubes and her, Mullvad installed by hand thanks to Micah’s blog, the Nitrokey also unusable, and finally Thunderbird whose page intended to display the selected message is filled with lines of red codes on a white background.
While I discovered Qubes years ago, this time I would have lasted a week before having to return, constrained and forced, to a stable but so dull bone in comparison.
Unsuitable material? I don’t think so, but I’m not a specialist at all.
Newbie ignorant and unable to make every effort to understand and adapt? No doubt, Darwin will say what natural selection has wreaked havoc.
I hope that one day the developers and all this team of magicians will be able to offer to a less geeky public the access to the dream I would have liked to share with them and all this nice community.
