Re: Anyone heard of and or tried the Tails OS

Jeremy <icu8it2@...>

If it's the same tails that people use when wishing to browse/use a computer and stay anonymous, making the suggestion of using a typical live environment that's been made to be accessible like Vinux and that it'd be comparable, that's just crazy. I would assume that someone asking about tails would understand its purpose, so hopefully he/she would also understand that there's a fair number of differences in the tails configuration, it being configured to use TOR, as one example, where a normal Vinux/Ubuntu live environment would not. That'd be like suggesting that a Ubuntu mate live/installation would be comparable to using Kali, which for those who might be familiar with Backtrack/Kali and what it's used for, would know just how many differences there truly are and why they're two different systems used for two different purposes.
While using a live environment to browse the internet is definitely a neat idea, for security, an environment like Vinux, just because it's accessible, does not make it the same as using tails.

If you want to browse like that, get a ubuntu mate iso. put it on a bootable flash drive, then run it and load orca with either control alt s or control windows s, and browse the web. when done, unplug the flash drive restart the computer and you're good to go.
