"Generally Qubes OS is an advanced tool for implementing Security by Isolation approach on your desktop, using domains implemented as lightweight Xen VMs. It tries to marry two contradictory goals: how to make the isolation between domains as strong as possible, mainly due to clever architecture that minimizes the amount of trusted code, and how to make this isolation as seamless and easy as possible."
