anons need a new OS any tbh just needs to be secure Anonymous 09/20/2019 (Fri) 18:39:36 No. 88 [Reply] [Last]
need a new OS
tails OS or cube OS

Here's a secret. Most Linux Distros are the same, and at the end of the day you have total control over the machine. Alpine for lazy server admins that want a light, secure base install while being easily adaptable for anonymity. Debian repositories for normies because you'll be fairly stable. You'll be able to patch exploits and bugs fairly quickly with Debian. You can still replace SystemD with something like OpenRC if you wanted. Gentoo for no-life techie because you have full control and responsibility over how to compile all packages. TempleOS for a Commodore experience but with HolyC just in time compiling. Good for distractionless programming since it has no networking. Qubes and Whonix for your isolation and anonymity needs, useful for war-drives. Qubes will isolate apps and Whonix will isolate workspaces from exploitation and route to Tor. You can install additional apps such as other anonymity networks like i2p. OpenBSD for your isolated laptop disconnected from the internet to deal with personal agendas like finance. Transfer info from a secure isolated channel into an encrypted volume on USB then swap to secure laptop. Wipe the USB after. Read up on stuxnet Or just find a way to use pen and paper, and fire.
Wtf systemd is garbage. Solution is pajeta making qubes with new init.
Fedora is pretty secure if you know how to use SELinux.
>>700 >making qubes with new init. Can you guys send me a step guide or manual? I seriously don't want to learn years of computer science just to make my laptop wear a metaphorical condom.

US Government does same thing every 10 years with United States Census Buereu who sells their data set to the highest bidder. They allocate billions of dollars of jew money to infrastructure and roads etc as an illusion to sell out the american people.

>>705 No, it's a database of aggregated information from various sources. It belongs to one of those wonderful companies who capitalize on everyones privacy by buying, harvesting personal info and selling it to creepy corporations who think it's within their right to manipulate the dumb sheep. A doxing service for the elite.

>>553 Nigga wut?! You don't know shit about retro computing until you've gotten your grubbies on a classic Mtek K-104 and felt that springy click of the keys as they rebound like soldiers giving each of your fingers a personal salute in response to each stroke across the board. They don't make shit like that anymore, now it's all 3rd rate plastic crap with rubbery rebounds that feel like your fingers are wobbling all over some fat dude's ass.

So, I'm finally tired of being a slave of windows and I want to get into linux. I really love KDE Plasma but it is just a DE from what I could understand, and I must choose a distro before. What's the best distro for someone who can't even use git? I don't want any botnet crap btw
2 posts omitted.
>>680 Elementary OS They have their own DE
>>680 See this list. Probably pick one with KDE as default. https://www.distrowatch.com/search.php?desktop=KDE+Plasma#simple
>>682 This, Cinnamon Mint is easy to use, looks lovely and functions well.
>>680 If you want the easiest one I would recommend > Kubuntu > Manjaro KDE However, both aren't 100% FOSS by default. (They are mostly, except for some drivers and a few other things) If you're looking for a 100% FOSS distro (Not as noob friendly) I can recommend: > Debian (You'll have to install KDE yourself)
