It is hard to think about an OS before we can read the source code and
try the product, so what follows should be taken with a grain of salt.

Apart of the configuration management (with the interesting idea of
using obfsproxy without Tor to retrieve a list of VPN servers that are
not blocked yet), the networking setup seems to be the usual one-hop
proxy that we know is pretty weak as far as anonymity is concerned.

That's why adventurous statements such as "the secure operating
system" and "offers anonymity through the untraceable VPN connection"
trigger red warning lights in my head. I hope the user documentation
will display the relevant warnings prominently to avoid putting users
at risk.

Still, with my Tails developer hat on, I can't wait to have a closer
look at the result, and I hope we can share some tools and work with
the uVirtus team :)
