Show HN: Qvm-create-windows-qube: The most secure and private way to run Windows
news.ycombinator.com | 2021-10-17
That feature is currently in the works (officially speaking) for Windows 10; for Windows 7 it already exists (although it has of course been EOL for some time now).
However, I do recall finding a report of someone successfully using WinApps (https://github.com/Fmstrat/winapps) as well as RDP running in a Linux (GNU/Linux) qube to effectively have Windows applications displayed on a window level. Security-wise it still holds up because that Linux qube, if compromised via the RDP connection, will lead to the disclosure of no additional sensitive information because it's only being used for that purpose. As long as you have ample RAM to support it, this could work very well.
To those that dual boot with Windows. Will you be upgrading to Windows 11?

How to install Microsoft office 2019?

If u really want ms office this might be useful: https://github.com/Fmstrat/winapps. I usually use Google docs which i think is better than office 365.
Are there any VM services which dont use the entire GUI and such?
reddit.com/r/virtualization | 2021-10-09
The best I know of right now on the open source and/or Linux side of things that works with Windows guest applications is Winapps - https://github.com/Fmstrat/winapps. There's a bit of setup you'll need to do directly in the Windows VM. After that you should be able to launch the app exclusively into your Linux session.
There are 2 things that prevents me from going to Linux exclusively, can i overcome them?
reddit.com/r/linuxquestions | 2021-10-09
For both those programs it's no. But if you don't mind some extra setup you can run Winapps to run those programs anyway.

Two, consider using Linux. Gaming on Linux is possible right now, you can run whatever software in Windows containers like if they were natives apps... Don't dual boot to Linux or you will come back to Windows, you should use Linux as the only one OS on your computer. Make VMs or containers to run Windows softwares (even a specific device that needs a specific driver, passthrough to your VM).

Looks like they are looking for maintainers. Maybe check out some of the recommendations in the comments there? I don't really know anything about Winapps.

You can use this configuration from winapps : https://github.com/Fmstrat/winapps/blob/7689ab8aa168a8d2b2d5ca75e8d26fb173760e72/docs/KVM.md You can't have 3d acceleration but other than that, it works very well.

I'm sure though it should be much easier now though with wslg on Windows 11.

Harden and secure browsers in containers, with GUI
news.ycombinator.com | 2021-10-11
Now that WSLg support (https://github.com/microsoft/wslg) has landed in a release version of windows, another approach to this is to create new WSL distros for specific tasks, and run browsers from them.
Whilst it's a VM, I've found start-up time for WSL instances to be pretty quick, and it's pretty easy to create and clone a template VM (one approach https://raesene.github.io/blog/2020/05/31/Custom_Pentest_Dis... )news.ycombinator.com | 2021-10-11
