This is my first week of usage and impressions about the Qubes.
The idea of isolation seemed wonderful before using it.
Now I find very unhandy what I deal with in Qubes.

1) No way of desktop sharing, though I need it very much. I read some ideas on 
the point here!msg/qubes-users/-JEfgOF-TaI/kIU_JCmUCAAJ
It sounds almost impossible. I use Zoom and Viber to share screen. Have no idea 
of screen forwarding to a VM.

2) Cross-clipboard operations don't work by any means. Cross-usage of 
applications, user-generated shortcuts to apps - everything seems a problem.
3) Appear empty windows I've never seen before in usual apps like Skype, 
qbittorrent, VLC etc.
4) No free space for software and libraries. There is a huge risk of loosing 
data when resizing images. I lost it twice, though I repeated every step from 
the guide.
5) Templates are based on pretty specific distros like Fedora and Debian. It 
takes time for Arch and Windows templates to create.
6) It is not very easy to direct webcam on a particular VM.

Again, the idea is excellent. If there is a way to save my time on points 1-3 I 
would be thankful.
