Introduction


Brand new member. Looking to move to Linux and toss Windows out the window. Lots of frustration with malware. From what people have told me, I need to embrace Linux.
But I have another reason for the switch. I am looking for a super secure way to boot my computer and after shutdown, leave no trace. Anyone have the same desires?
Boot straight from a CD. The CD would be pre-configured for the computer. Knows the hardware. Boots straight to the desktop. No passwords needed. After all, you are just booting from a CD. No stored stuff there to protect. Once online, you can logon to your email. Cloud storage space. Watch streaming content.
I hope that this group can help me attain my dream.
Thanks,
paranoob (paranoid noob)
