    I decided to try Silverblue several months ago and never looked back. It's rewriting the book on what a Linux distro actually is, and for a workstation or laptop it's simply brilliant.

    Silverblue has the same lifecycle as other Fedora variants with the advantage of being able to upgrade or downgrade very easily and reliably because the OS update is image based.

    That was a fascinating read! Thanks so much for sharing it. I'm fascinated by secure computing, things like OpenBSD, ChromeOS, immutable files systems, etc.
    I particularly loved this line:

    But from a user perspective of course, applications can do quite a lot; similar to the WiFi camera case, attackers are likely perfectly happy injecting “unprivileged” Android applications that can monitor your location, microphone etc.
    Unprivileged
