Here is the thing. I love Qubes. It is amazing for privacy, separating my workspaces, and being secure. However, I wanted to play some games. The problem is that Qubes runs everything in a VM without even accessing the GPU. So, I needed a good Linux distro, and I settled on Void with musl. So, I am going to explain why you might want to consider using Void Linux.

Totally independent distro is pretty cool

And Void Linux is one of the few distros still supporting 32 bit OSes

I have been using Void for few years now. For me the best thing is that you can learn how startup/services work and how to build your own packages in just few days. This makes me feel very much in control of the system.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
