Kushal Das: Fedora 29 on Qubes OS

I spent most of my life using Fedora as my primary
operating system on my desktop/laptops. I use CentOS on
my servers, sometimes even Fedora, and a few special cases, I use *BSD systems.

But, for the last one year I am running Qubes OS as my
primary operating system on my laptop. That enables me to still keep using
Fedora in the AppVMs as I want, and I can also have different work VMs in
Debian/Ubuntu or even Windows as required. Moving to a newer version of Fedora
is just about installing the new template and rebooting any AppVM with the
newest template.

Fedora 29 will release on 30th October, and Qubes team already built a template
for the same and pushed to the testing repository. You can install it by the
following command.

$ sudo qubes-dom0-update qubes-template-fedora-29 --enablerepo=qubes-template-itl-testing

After this, I just installed all the required packages and setup the template
as I want using my Qubes
project. It
took only a few minutes to move all of my development related VMs into Fedora
29 and this still keeps the option open to go back to Fedora 28 the moment I
want. This is one of the beauty of Qubes OS and of course there are the regular
security aspects too.

If you are a software developer using Linux, and also care about security
practices, give Qubes OS a try. It has also a very
active and helpful user community. I am sure it will not disappoint you.
