Recently I saw techlore’s video about how Fedora is one of the safest Operating system you can get out of the box ,so here I would suppose that we here are talking about the silver blue(Immutable one) edition of Fedora which is considered better in terms of security , then I went about searching for other “Immutable” operating systems which are said to be better in terms of security and then came across the fact that Chrome(and Chromium OS) are also “immutable” in that sense so I wanted a deeper analysis about why Fedora is Techlore’s choice why not something like chromium OS(The open source version of Chrome OS) or something like PrimeOS or BlissOS(Basically something android based or even not android based(NixOS maybe?))? and I found an article which talked about other “immutable” Operating Systems (here)
Now, I want to make clear that I do understand that having a read-only file system in not the only way to make an operating system “safe” & I also acknowledge that Fedora SIlverBlue/Kionite is one of the safest Linux distro present out there(But my problem with it is that it’s heavy and i’m broke so no high end systems) and when i searched about how to change Desktop Environment in Silverblue it was quite difficult plus you cannot do much on that system because of it’s nature(for eg. I was unable to even access root directory directly on that system) so I would still prefer to have a separate system for tinkering and developmental use cases(plus compartmentalisation is good) so you will use this system mostly for normal use-case(watching videos ,sending mails,etc.)
I would also like to add that on searching for “Safe Operating systems” ,you get BS results none of them is usable even for someone like me(and I am that guy in my friend group who wants communist cults to rule the world and hate google so you get the idea) and some of them are not even “secure”
So this through this post I will like to start a discussion/get suggestions/provide suggestion for techlore’s next video.
TLDR :- Why Henry says that Fedora is the best distro for privacy/security why not open source derivatives of Chrome OS or Other Linux based distro’s that have containerised approach.
Thanks in advanced for everyone’s inputs & suggestions.
