Struggling - OS Choice
i found this site by using google to find some "how to's" for Kali.
I was dual booting for a while but i mostly use Windows for most of the time lately.
How come? Because the performance for Virtualbox/VMware is by far a head of Linux. I firstly tried it with Debian (net-install > xfce) and with Arch (xfce), on both the performance was pretty bad. The whole OS was lagging if not unuseable, even when i turned off the VM i needed to restart in order to get a decent working OS again.
On Windows i feel a bit unsafe, which leads me to "BitLocker" with 256bit (changed it in the settings, default is 128bit encryption), also i disabled the Microsoft probing (if you ever heard about it?!), also i'm using some Veracrypt containers to keep things safe, especially when it comes to VM'ing. I know i could use Verycrypt to encrypt my whole partition, but UEFI isnt supported.
But i still struggle. My plan was, reformat my HDD and fire up Windows on it, BitLock it with 256bit again and just use Linux in a VM, if i'm in the mood for it. When it comes to Kali i would use it on a persistent/encrypted USB Stick anyways. I would NEVER use Kali as a installed OS.
Within the last years i got a bit paranoid, thats why i still feel a bit unsafe under Windows, but the OS "just works", if using correctly etc. I never was infected on WIndows, but since i do some shady stuff sometimes, i'm a bit paranoid..
So what do you guys think? Is my Plan decent enough?
