I have a lot of experience with contemporary Linux, but no experience whatsoever with Qubes OS or Tails or the security-focused contemporary distributions. I'm just trying to make sense of what's out there.
The Wikipedia page for Tails says,
Tails was first released on 23 June 2009. It is the next iteration of development on Incognito, a Gentoo-based Linux distribution.
The Wikipedia page for Incognito says,
Incognito's developer has stated on the project's homepage that Incognito has been discontinued and recommends Tails as an alternative.
Is Tails then going to stay with Debian/dpkg -- a system I'm used to. Or, are they moving to Gentoo? I'm just confused at,
- The trajectory of the project.
- The reasons for entertaining the migration for rebasing atop Gentoo.
