    Qubes OS 4.0.2 has been released!
    https://www.qubes-os.org/news/2020/01/02/qubes-4-0-2/

    An up to date installation will be the same as a new point release, but new installations are much quicker because you don't have to update a lot. Also, because a newer Linux kernel is already included, it will be able to install on newer hardware where the old ISO could be unable to install without manually adding a newer kernel into the ISO.

    I am using QubesOS latest release since a few days, my daily driver. I am so amazed, I mean I never tried it before but luckily my hardware was ok and it is so much better in everything when compared to a more casual linux distro with a bunch of virtualbox machines. VM (qubes) management is beyond incredible. Very happy with it.

    NitroPad X230 passes hardware certification for Qubes 4.0!
    https://www.qubes-os.org/news/2020/03/04/nitropad-x230-qubes-certification/

    Yes, QubesOS makes using multiple VM's really user friendly, and more secure as well.

    Spoiler: don't sweat if you're still on 2nd or 3rd gen Intel that don't get microcode updates. 2nd gen is not vulnerable to this particular vulnerability and Qubes team have released a mitigation for 3rd gen.
