    What? You literally download an executable and run it. That's it. nothing else.

    Yet this alternative is assuming you are comfortable setting up your own wired network, and capable of setting up a NAT environment and relay your wireless through another device? C'mon...

    Hexic, in reading the article, did you get the impression that you would be needing to load software into this Anonabox? Because the impression I got, after reading the second paragraph, is that all the software is already installed and the devise if plug-and-play.

    Totally condescending, like only one computer user out of every 1,000,000 users can figure out where to place a few numbers--127.0.0.1:9050. Since using Tor is such an arduous task and only the "gifted few" have the knowledge necessary to use Tor, please provide a Tor user guide. (Of course, most people have moved on to valid and more secure protocols, so it may be a waste of your time; nope, not going to tell or show you what these protocols are, but VPN isn't close, and I am one of the "gifted few ;-) from the NSA .
