    763763We know it's not the best solution to run a VM inside a VM. Virtual Box inside Virtual Box works, but if we change to another virtualization platform later, that may be no longer possible.

     766You may skip this optional chapter. Written by aos developer adrelanos.
     768While I read real papers, like the [ Onion routing design paper] and many others, I can't be coerced into creating a paper "Designing an anonymous operating system" with latex as pdf.
     770Like Mike Perry, developer of Tor Browser [ said] "I find the pdf format heavy and unnerving from a security perspective.". That also goes for me and I also find the pdf format inconvinient. It would also take me some time to learn latex, pdf creation, formatting etiquette and so on. Time, which I rather invest into improving the design, developing and so on. The "Onion routing design paper" is now also outdated and I rather have an editable, often updated and revised website compared to a paper/pdf.
     772Tails does also not have a design paper as pdf and still lots of users and developers. Also TrueCrypt had not design paper about plausible deniability and still got reviewed by Bruce Schneier et al.
