TAILS – The Amnesic Incognito Live System – Anonymous OS
Anonymous OS – running Debian Linux
The Amnesic Incognito Live System or Tails is a Linux distribution aimed at preserving privacy and anonymity. It is the next iteration of development on the Incognito Linux distribution. It is based on Debian, with all outgoing connections forced to go through Tor. The system is designed to be booted as a live CD or USB and no trace is left on local storage unless explicitly told to.

How to BOOT
1. Place the Tails DVD into your Drive and reboot (remember to alter your BIOS boot order first)
- Plug in a wired Ethernet cable to the back of your router (wired is easier – plug it into the back of your home router).

It uses TOR and Startpage – by default. Yay!
- It uses IceWeasel (a special version of FireFox).
- HTTPS Everywhere is installed by default.
- TOR is used by default to connect to the Internet
- It uses Startpage.com and Duckduckgo.com as it’s search engines.
- Best of all, when you first boot up, you can select what they called “XP Camouflage” system – so that it looks like XP not Linux. For those who know Windows well, this is spell binding, as you’re able to find your way around instantly.
Well done! Wonderful Linux system. Tor based. Startpage search engine. Privacy settings installed by default.
The XP camouflage – is a stroke of pure genius – as windows users can play around with Debian Linux.
