Privacy-focused Linux distro Tails 3.12 now available for download with many critical security bug fixes

We are living in a very confusing world these days. Computers and the internet were supposed to be our saviors — a portal to all the knowledge of the world. While that is still largely true, computers have also eroded our privacy through a slow campaign of conditioning humans to accept more and more encroachment by companies into their lives.
