Tails 2.2RC1 (1st release candidate) AKA  “The Amnesic Incognito Live System”  was available for download today. Yours truly downloaded the ISO image from the Softpedia website and created a bootable USB stick as well as a DVD.  On boot, you have the option to choose live or live/failsafe. Then, you are given more options such as adding a root password before finally landing on the desktop.

The boot is faster and the menu is similar to the 2.0 version. Here’s a screenshot of the desktop.

Both the USB bootable stick and DVD worked like a charm. If you need to surf anonymously, this Linux OS is certainly the obvious choice. The Tor browser has the “No script globally” enabled by default but you can disable it for certain websites if you so desire.

All in all, very similar to the 2.0 version but much faster on boot, which is a nice improvement.
