Windows 7: Secure OS Tails Emerges From Beta

Secure OS Tails Emerges From Beta

If you want to give super-secure, relatively anonymous computing a shot, then the operating system used by famed NSA leaker Edward Snowden might be for you.

The Amnesic Incognito Live System, otherwise known as Tails, has officially jumped out of beta and into version 1.0.

So, what does that actually mean? Security fixes, bug fixes, and general improvements to the OS, which are all detailed in the version 1.0 release notes for the operating system. The updates are nothing Earth-shattering, but the announcement is nevertheless an achievement for an anonymously created OS nearly five years in the making.

Because Edward Snowden is under the influence of Russia and might of been all along I think I will stay away from that operating system.
