[qubes-users] A quick survey on usage patterns?

Hi everyone, anyone willing to share how do you use Qubes environment: tempaltes, VMs, etc? I think besides "tinfoil hat" community many of us do still use traditional services like dropbox, g suite, signal, telegram etc. How do you manage that? A signle VM for several apps? One VM per app?

Hi fellow qubes users, I just installed (not to say it was easy) Qubes on gen10 intel NUC. It has a "mobile" type CPU, 1.6Ghz with turbo boost up to 4GHz. However, Xentop never shows frequencies higher than 1.6 no matter if I have a CPU-intensive task or not. Does turbo boost work as expected?
