TAILS is a Debian based Linux distro, specifically designed for you to boot from a USB to avoid storing any data locally as well as providing tools to keep online eyes from prying into your business. Even those who have become jaded over the years by their knowledge of the prevalence of online tracking raised an eyebrow over the past week with the news about tracking by Apple, Google and Facebook, to name just a few. TAILS will protect your browsing with TOR and as you are booting from a USB you won't end up with new trackers on your system. The new version is based on the 4.19 kernel, with the variety of updates that offers, especially when it comes to graphics cards. The Register has some advice before you install it though, which you can check out here.
In other news, we are sad to announce Ryan failed in his attempt to takeover Intel.
"Hot on the heels of Apple's latest privacy blunder, The Amnesic Incognito Live System (TAILS) has emitted version 3.12."
