Hi! Has anyone tried Lazarus on Qubes OS ( https://www.qubes-os.org/ )?

A quick check suggests that that's basically a hypervisor with multiple user environments including Linux and Windows. Which of those are you interested in?

Thanks MarkMLI! I was thinking about Win7, Ubuntu (possibly Lubuntu or Kubuntu), maybe ReactOS...

Why do you anticipate that there should be problems, if it's a good VM system?

Oh, I haven't tried it yet. Here and now I don't necessarily think that there should be problems!

I've run Lazarus on a couple of virtualised systems, but in general have preferred to have the "real thing" when possible: SPARCs and some fairly early ARMs among them. I can't remember for certain by now, but I'm pretty sure that I used Qemu for both endiannesses of MIPS when it was being brought to life, and possibly for Lazarus.

One thing I would note, and I think I raised this as a bug so that the community was aware, was that there was an installation problem on ReactOS: I think it was that decompressing files onto BTRFS generated data faster than the periodic commit operation could handle... with predictable results. Installing onto FAT with a fudged symlink (or whatever Windows calls it) was fine.

The wiki page https://wiki.freepascal.org/Qemu_and_other_emulators hasn't had much love over the last few years, but would probably be a good place to note anything interesting.
