    • Tails is a Debian-based distro you might install on a USB stick and run live. It funnels traffic through TOR to protect anonymity and wipes its behind on the way out. Qubes can do the same through its Whonix VM, but it also offers much more. It's offers security, by building ephemeral VMs in which apps can run. Thsese can be Debian, Fedora or Whonix based. Anonymity+security with Qubes. JohnFastmanJan 2017 • 3 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Great alternative to Linux Tails. Is more secure by isolating everything using Virtual Machines. Takes more resources obviously but more secure. Downside is that its not portable like Linux Tails is, but you can carry it around in a USB stick preferably 128GB. OAKSIF0May 2018 Disagree   Agree
