First announcement of heads

dyne.org is proud to announce the new, soon-to-be-released GNU/Linux distribution called heads, as you might already see from the website's name :p

heads is a new libre (free as in freedom) GNU/Linux distribution born out as an answer to Tails 2.0 and their switch to the systemd init system. Keep in mind not only systemd is the reason. Tails is also a distribution that doesn't respect users' freedom and offers non-free software. Advertising such a distribution as the world's main choice for a distro that respects your privacy is pure bullshit. Non-free software can not be audited for security without reverse engineering such software. It is very hard to do so, and without proper motivation, nobody is going to do it.

As an answer to this problem, we decided to create heads. Mentioned already, heads respects your freedom: by offering only free software.

For a more in-depth explanation on heads, see the about page.
