A Demo of Tails

A Demo of Tails - with Hewie Poplock The June 8, Central Florida Computer Society Meeting will include a demo of Tails, an open-source operating system designed to leave as little trace as possible. It's an amnesiac system, which means it's completely fresh every time you boot up. There are no saved files, no new programs, and most importantly, it becomes a blank slate the moment you shut down. It's the digital equivalent of buying a new computer for a single session and tossing it into the river once you're done. It is a complete operating system designed to be used from a DVD, USB stick, or SD card independently of the computer's original operating system. It is Free Software and based on Debian GNU/Linux. It doesn’t store any data locally, which means users of TAILS are almost impossible to detect.
