Recommended by Commander Sir James Bond 😀 Great stuff!

This is truly the right Linux distro for secret agents.

“Ubuntu Privacy Remix is a modified Live-CD based on Ubuntu Linux. UPR is not intended for permanent installation on hard disk. The goal of Ubuntu Privacy Remix is to provide an isolated, working environment where private data can be dealt with safely. The system installed on the computer running UPR remains untouched.
The risk of theft of such private data arises not only from “conventional” criminals, trojans. rootkits, keyloggers etc. In many countries, measures are taken or being prepared aiming at spying and monitoring its citizens. Ubuntu Privacy Remix is a tool to protect your data against unsolicited access.”

I think I’m going to wait till Q1 with getting new hardware then. The Dragon platform looks really promising! I hope the prices for the new next generation AMD platform will look reasonable too.
