I've put Qubes OS on my X230 as an experiment. The thing is *slow* (of course — it's basically a bunch of VMs), but the compartmentalisation really made me think about how I use my computers and how all my data is, so to speak, in the same basket. I don't think I need this level of security so I'll reinstall some mainstream Linux flavour at some point, but I'm enjoying the exploring and tinkering.
