Qubes is a project that has always intrigued me. Although I don't have a threat model that necessitates the level of compartmentalization it provides, the idea of organizing my computer usage into containers is appealing from an organizational standpoint.

All my previous attempts to daily drive Qubes were cut short for one simple reason: performance. I simply didn't have a device that could run Qubes at an acceptable level of performance.

However, now armed with a shiny new Framework 16, I was hopeful that I could actually run Qubes to a degree that I was happy with. Unfortunately, it wasn't quite as smooth as I would have hoped.
