Documenting what Whonix does and what Whonix does not do is more a task for documenting what it does not do. Quoted from the About page: "Remember, Whonix is based on Debian, KDE, VirtualBox, Tor and Tor Browser. It is nothing very special. To oversimplify it: Whonix is just a collection of configuration files. 1"
The result (Whonix) creates a picture in some people's minds that Patrick Schleizer (Whonix developer) must be similar to Tor developers a genius and expert for all kinds of technical topics. The facts are quite the opposite...
- Has initiated the TorBOX project, which was later renamed to Whonix. (See History.)
- Initially had some help by (at least) two different people.
- Many improvements are based on reading documentation, papers, researching, stating questions, discussion, communication with the community.
What Patrick Schleizer is NOT an expert for:
- Tor source code
- Tor anonymity
Creating Whonix was quite simple and you'll see it yourself if you care to read the source code and technical design. There was a learning curve involved and time investment. That does NOT make me automatically an expert in all kinds of topics.
