Fantastic! Been looking for a systemd free alternative to TAILS, thank you ever so much to the creators/maintainers. TAILS now wants to look in your encrypted drives, that worries me!

is he still alive?
It's not at the level of Tails, which is currently the best.
missing tools like, Enigmail, OnionShare, XMPP...
not really serious!

Nice environments without systemd. Less bloated and much faster than Tails..

heads just works, and fast. It uses only free software and has hilarious -- beyond excellent -- documentation: even if you never read the docs, give it a try.
One issue remains with the choice to uphold software freedom: your WiFi card probably won't be supported out of the box, unless you bought your laptop with that in mind. But if you run a laptop from the Ministry of Truth, you're set. Keep your WiFi card firmware at hand on a USB stick if you want wireless connection.
heads gives a lot of attention to (security) details.
Unplug your USB drive and your laptop will shutdown at once!

In fact needed distro - as needed is sth light and hardened with Openbox preconfigured to connect via tor only and blocking all other outgoing connections.
However without firmware for WiFi cards and no mobile broadband networking possibility it is nearly useless.
Should use network manager instead of wicd.

Much-needed replacement for Tails, and based on the rock-solid Devuan. A very nice distro with focus on privacy protection and no mercy for bloated software. Well done!

Does what it's supposed to do without bloated desktop. Light and fast.

Heads is very light by default - lightweight DE, no bloatware, no pointless packages, just a means of privacy on the web, and it does that specific job well.
This is my replacement for Tails as Tails is very heavy/slow.
Good work, dev.

Run heads live and nice to keep on usb key chain, very fast and stable.
Guess this is Devuans version of Tails but a lot better!
Does what I want it to do so negative views on the distro!
