And there it is! Another version of the popular distribution Tails, which is focused on privacy protection and maximum safety, has been released. However it is probably the last version of this distribution, which is supported by alternative I2P anonymizing network. Developers are not able to further implement this technology and look for someone to help them with I2P. Otherwise, Tails will close this network support. More information

Beside from a few very outdated pieces, motherboard ASUS KGPE-D16 is great one. This is the first motherboard, which received certification from the FSF, for regular desktop computers and servers. In the price of 833 EUR this piece will surely please any lover of free software supporters of the GNU Project or worshipers of Richard Stallman. More information
