Is gentoo the most secure distro?
More than, for example, Qubes OS?
>>
>>64722977
No. You can do Gentoo hardened but it's not necessarily ending up as "the most" secure.

Please develop your arguments if you have any

Linus don't give a fuck about security on Linux.

He does, you fucking idiot. He says that exploits come from bugs. So fix your bugs and stop masturbating about security.

Yes, he doesnt

Spectre mitigations were added in GCC 7.3.0 and Linux 4.15+, but both are keyworded in Gentoo.

So by default, no it's not the most secure distro.
>>
>>64722977
No its insecure as fuck. The only time you ever hear about people getting viruses are fucktards running arch or gentoo because they don't know how to properly build a secure system like the maintainers for non hobbyist distros like Fedora and Ubuntu.

>>64723556
it's disgusting that he and spender couldn't get along
>>64722977
it's as secure as anything as long as you make it secure. pointless thread

Yeah... ask yourself why.

Hm...

>>64723787
Then why did they build chromiumos off it?
>>
>>64724258
Imbecile.
>>
>>64724330
Gentoo isn't the problem it's the fact that the average linux user even an advance one doesn't know how to configure a distro for security and gentoo doesn't come with secure defaults like other distros do. The chromeos developers had no problem locking it down and making it more secure. If you're a developer and like wasting all your free time I'm sure you could have a secure gentoo but the way the average user installs it is insecure as fuck. You'd be way better of with Ubuntu from a security perspective.
>>
>>64724343
Not an argument.
>>
>>64724960
You are right about that, Ubuntu is secure as fuck but I guess a lot of that is thanks to Debian?

>>
>>64723702
almost all exploits are from bugs.
>>
>>64725170
No its mostly canonical. A lot of the security enhancements from Ubuntu get put back into Debian. I wouldn't really say Ubuntu is based on Debian at this point. They've essentially become co-dependent. I don't think anyone should be using a distro not backed by a major company if they care about security. Although Void and Solus at least do the bare minimum to keep their users safe from what I've seen.

GNU, hence GNU/Linus kernal.
>>
>>64722977
Why couldn't you just install Gentoo inside Qubes OS?

I thought about running Gentoo, OpenBSD, and Win7 inside it.
