A spinoff of Inconito it was new in about mid 2009 or so.
Basically a TOR client OS and toolset.

What is to think, it is good, but old news.

Tails is what it is. Best on a usb key, imho, and not a dvd.

It supplies firmware, (which is proprietary binary blobs), but you'll probably be short a driver or three.
Great if you are a spy, and want to access stuff & maybe send stuff, not save it. You can do encrypted local storage, but that takes forever. Tor has no fancy (insecure) stuff, so it sucks as a browser, apart from being secure.

I've actually no need to use it.

For anonymity, I've used whonix in a VM which sets up a tor connection. I run a VPN on the VM host and then surf inside whonix, over tor which is ultimately through a vpn. My ISP can't see the tor traffic. Tor is definitely not foolproof though, and can be traced so this is not a perfect solution. I2P is (perhaps) better, but requires opening ports and I am not comfortable doing that.
