Tails Project has just released the v3.6 RC1 of Tails, a live operating system that runs on every computer and leaves no trace to the machine or even the internet.
Version 3.6 RC1 is the sixth largest version of the fixed version of Tails 3.0.
This particular OS was used by former NSA employee Edward Snowden to stay hidden on the internet.
TAILS (@Tails_live, https://t.co/Re3LzE4WdO) is the most accessible for normal folks looking to "torify" non-browser traffic, and a gentle introduction to Linux (which is still gonna be a learning experience). You can boot it from a USB stick without overwriting your everyday OS. https://t.co/eHqYarXFjZ— Edward Snowden (@Snowden) December 13, 2017
