People like Manuel Amador (Rudd-O) are just haters, and hate that people
know more than them and see the flaws where there are flaws that are unseen
by those that are trusting, just like Manuel seems to just trust everything.
I'm paranoid. I don't even trust Qubes 100%. There is nothing in this
world, software wise, that I trust 100%, UNLESS I write it myself or can
see every piece of code that is there. If there are things that are
propriety that I can't see the code of, then how can I fully trust it?
If I write it myself, I know what it does and know how it works. That's one
reason why I like Qubes, I can see the code and know what everything does
Qubes wise. But something like SystemD, I don't trust it. It can be broken,
and if it breaks they have access to everything, INCLUDING the tunnels
between the Guest and Dom0. This is ONE reason why I disable SUDO and have
the root account passworded and secured fully.
Yes, it's architecture is made for that, and it's great for what it does.
There are so many things wrong with the Fedora templates that I have had to
erase and install and change so many things just to make then actually
usable. (Not saying they aren't good for others, just for my security and
piece of mind and the tools that are needed by me since they are things
that should be on there anyway.
Qubes allows me to do many things, but there are things that are wrong that
happen for an unknown reason, and have been doing so for a long time, and
have not been explained and the developers have not looked into it, or just
not responded. Whether they have not had the time or availability of man
power or whatever the reason is I don't know. As I have said before, it's
something that I understand and am fine with, and I'm sure they will get
around to it when they get the chance, since it's a bug that is in the full
release of 3.2.
