Tails OS 3.0 offers new features, improved security

Tails is one of my favorite operating systems. It's a great platform if you're looking to transition from Windows to Linux, plus it offers top notch privacy features and tools out of the box. Among the main improvements in Tails 3.0 (based on Debian 9) we find a new startup and shutdown experience, a lot of polish to the desktop, security improvements, and key upgrades to the included software.
