    Qubes OS is designed to provide better security and privacy for users by implementing a security-focused architecture that leverages virtualization technologies. Here are some reasons for choosing Qubes OS:

    1. Security by compartmentalization: Qubes OS implements a compartmentalized architecture that isolates different applications and their associated data into separate "qubes." This isolation helps prevent malware and other malicious activities from compromising the entire system.

    2. Easy to use: Despite its security-focused architecture, Qubes OS is designed to be easy to use. Users can create and manage their qubes easily through a graphical interface.

    3. Privacy protection: Qubes OS is designed to protect user privacy by limiting the amount of data that is shared between different applications and qubes. This helps prevent applications from sharing data without the user's knowledge or consent.

    4. Open-source: Qubes OS is an open-source project, which means that the source code is available for anyone to review and modify. This allows users to verify the security and privacy of the operating system.

    5. Flexibility: Qubes OS is a versatile operating system that can run on a wide range of hardware and supports a variety of applications. Users can customize their qubes to suit their needs, and developers can create new qube templates to support new applications.


    Due to necessary changes to the board, MSI’s standard warranty does not apply to this product.
    3mdeb guarantees the proper operation of the platform for two years under the following conditions:

    1. Hardware used only the Certified Dasharo firmware version. If other firmware is or was installed, the warranty is void.
