Introduction[edit | edit source]

Qubes OS is a free, open source system designed for single-user desktop computing. Qubes OS' main appeal is on it's security, with the way that the system splits up into virtual machines, essentially being able to separate software into these virtual machines so completely that it is as if there are multiple computers within your computer.

This section enables the option to investigate what languages this Operating System supports. What options are available to enable a specific language in the operating system for a user which reads/types/speaks a specific language. Any participants/students are welcome to investigate/research regarding this topic.

Experimentation/Investigation[edit | edit source]

When participants are involved it might be good to be transparent about what versions of the OS that one is/are using and provide any details that are considered relevant. Software is very dependent on what version of it is used sometimes. Sometimes features get deprecated, sometimes new ones are introduced. In Wikidata(if better examples are found with more accurate qualifiers or experimental properties add them if they are considered to add something to how Qubes OS is analyzed so others can learn):

Major releases in Qubes[edit | edit source]

Here one can learn more about specific releases of Qubes OS. Only major versions will be focused on in this section. Nothing prevents focus on minor versions, point releases etc. but that is going to be up to the community. This section should include all major releases.
