Looking For A Privacy Distribution

Looking For A Privacy Distribution

I'm looking to replace my PCLOS with a distro that focuses on privacy and anonymity such as Tails. What I'm looking to do is to eliminate or minimize the potential of someone tracking my networking habits in order to tailor some sort of add campaign or denial of access b/c someone may not like where I go or what I do. By no means do I participate in any nefarious activities, however, I have come to see with each passing day that what I do or participate in on a network or the internet is becoming less and less private particularly when accessing a public network at some coffee shop.

So with that in mind, what do you use or suggest? I would like the OS to be a desktop GUI that is robust enough to support a virtual box application or two with the usual terminal capabilities as well as being able to work in a dual boot environment. A link (Wiki?) to some information describing what to expect with such software/OS that outlines what it will or will not do would be great.

Liberte Linux is pretty awesome, not sure whether it is installable to hdd or not, though. Runs great from CD or USB flash drive, though.

Tails! Pretty much everything that connects to the internet is configured to do so using Tor ...
