The Amnesiac Incognito Live System (T.A.I.L.S.): Anonymous, Linux-based, live-boot operating system
Browse like Bond: Use any computer without leaving a trace with Tails
If James Bond logs on to a computer, he doesn't want to leave a bunch of files, cookies, or his IP address out there for someone to find. It might seem extreme, but sometimes it's a good idea to take the same precautions yourself.
In this post, we'll walk through how to use a USB stick or DVD to anonymize, encrypt and hide everything you do on a computer no matter where you are. When we say "browse without leaving a trace", we truly mean it. Using the Linux-based, live-boot operating system Tails (The Amnesiac Incognito Live System), you can use any computer anywhere without anyone knowing you were ever on it.
Tails is a portable operating system with all the security bells and whistles you'll ever need already installed on it. You can install Tails on one of your many dust-gathering USB drives or a DVD. We'll show you how to set up your own portable boot disc in the second section, but let's start by taking a look at what you get with Tails.
What Tails Is and What's Packed Into It - The magic of Tails is that you don't have to do a lick of work: once you create your boot disc you'll have a completely anonymous, totally private operating system preloaded with all the software you (or James Bond) would need. What's packed into it? Let's take a look.

3. Live systems have been around for years
Often configured from a CD. Have to set the BIOS to look somewhere other than the hard drive first
