Thanks for @micahflee for creating this video.

If you have any interest in Qubes OS, this is the video to watch. It's really interesting, and it was the video that got me to use it on my work laptop.

The benefits of Qubes is not just security. I find it to be extremely nice to be able to arbitrarily install software for testing purposes without having it mess up my configuration. I usually test software in a disposable VM and if there is a problem I can just restart and be back to a clean state.

M20, the Trifid Nebula, is located about 4100 ly away from us in the constellation of Sagittarius. It is an active star formation region. It also shows all three nebula types, the red region is an emission nebula, the blue region a reflection nebula, and dark nebula patches.

The Moon is tidally locked to the Earth, that is we see the same side of the Moon throughout its orbit about the Earth. That means that its period of rotation on its axis is the same as its orbital period and that it rotates once on its axis per orbit.

OnionShare 2.3.2.dev1 is released! Please try it out, report bugs, and help finish translating it to a bunch of languages ❤️
