>>8979>which is better for GPU passthrough fedora or qubes (how do i make the usb persistent)
Fedora because you have one less thing in the way (no hypervisor), but you can do GPU passthrough to Fedora VMs in Qubes.
Qubes uses systemd in dom0. I read about some guy developing a fork that uses systemvinit, but that hasn't progressed into anything that you can download.
Thankfully, there is isolation between VMs, even your AppVMs and dom0. So most security problems with systemd in dom0 (which to anyone else reading, has not proven to be less secure than other init), will be stuck in dom0.
It's possible to set up a systemd-less templateVM and make your AppVMs systemd-less. It's not easy, but it's easier than making dom0 systemd-less.
As for the code of conduct, every Linux distro seems to use the same CoC template (except maybe Apartheid Linux.) It's the community that brings drama to the distro or not. So far, it has a good community, and most of the devs are hobbyists or they get independent grants. There's no corporation like Red Hat behind the scenes.
>will it work on normal generic hardware since i bought a new motherboard from a repair shop
Probably. Most of the problems are with older hardware without hardware assisted virtualization.
>how do i disable the other security features on qubes
>im afraid of data loss from encryption
You don't need to encrypt the hard drive, it's an option at installation.
