We’re proud to announce that the Qubes OS Project has won a Mozilla Open Source Support (MOSS) award in the amount of 128,000 USD. This generous one-year award will fund the work of Frédéric Pierret on making Qubes more robust and stable, as well as several key parts of Nina Alter’s extensive work on making Qubes more user-friendly.

There are three separate tracks for MOSS awards. Qubes has won an award in the Mission Partners track. As Mozilla explains, “The Mission Partners track supports open source projects that significantly advance Mozilla’s mission.” It is a great honor for Qubes to be recognized as such a project, and we’re thrilled by the important work that this award will enable.
