Dlshad Othman, a Syrian hacker and anti-Assad activist (you might remember
him for Stephan Faris' piece on the hackers of Damascus on Businessweek) is
launching uVirtus Linux today in DC (see event here:

uVIrtus Linux, according to the project's site ( is a fully encrypted OS based on Debian
that has encryption tools preconfigured so that activist in Syria can use
it to avoid governemnt surveillance.

What do you guys think about this project? Reminds me a little bit of
FreedomBox (without the hardware).
