Posted by sei Solus OS is One of the best Linux distribution ever made. But sometimes i feel it don't have much support for researchers. Wish developer add some simulators for education purpose.

Posted by TheLinuxGooroo Just generally curious about what other Solus users use in order to protect their machines. I’m currently using UFW with GUFW installed as well. Is this enough protection or should I use an AV as well? If so, what AV?
