Secure vs. security (Score: 2, Informative)

by fishybell@pipedot.org on 2016-10-13 23:45 (#1Y0XG)

The feature list listed here seems aimed at providing the user security, rather than offering a secure OS.

I don't doubt that they have added things to help with being secure — like the listed sandboxing — but none of the rest of the list really strikes me as being geared towards a secure, locked down, OS. When you throw in things like "advanced proxy settings" and "everything through TOR" and "mandatory full disk encryption" this all seems to be targeted at the paranoid rather than those who genuinely require security (web servers, mail servers, etc.).

As far as the paranoid go, sure, use it; it probably can't beat Tails though.
