  9. Pros: Created and maintained by the military, hardened debian, clean UI, comes with Encryption Wizard (http://www.spi.dod.mil/docs/ewmanual.pdf), most go-to distro for accessing your bank account from an unsecure computer, basic set of office tools and programs, partial XP theme that doesn't scream its linux

  21. Cons: heavily relies on Tor which can be compromised, comes with shitty defaults like enabled javascript, always gets patched revealing previous fuckups that may deanonymize its users (browsed i2p in 1.0? sorry, it was broken and unsecure but we fixed it in 1.1 ;-))), nowhere near ready enough to be trusted with anything serious
  22. Online use: with a prayer
  23. Offline use: good to go

  37. "I don't see the point in a VM if you want anonymity. Your external OS is prone to leaking out information, and thanks to the fact that the VM is running inside an OS on your HDD you could be leaving behind shit you don't want to. Obviously there are ways to tweak an OS to make a VM safe, but it's a lot less riskier and a lot easier to just use a LiveOS."
