heads – a Devuan based GNU/Linux liveCD distribution aimed at people who like the aspect of controlling their privacy and anonymity on the Internet.

In heads, the init of choice is not systemd. systemd is a huge piece of software that, while being free software, has not been audited for security since its creation. Being big as it is, it is hard to do so, and as time goes, it’s becoming even tougher to audit systemd.

Another important thing is that heads uses only free software. On the other hand, with heads you only use free software, meaning you can gain access to any source code that is included in heads, at any time. Using free software it is far easier to avoid hidden backdoors and malware that might be in non-free software. We hope this makes you a tad more aware of the importance of free software and its uses.

heads was created, as a response to Tails 2.0’s transition to the systemd service management system.

The live system without the possibility of installation on a hard disk is available for x86 and x86_64 PC machines.
