==== Description: ====
Tor-enforcing operating system with focus on anonymity, privacy and security.
Based on GNU/Linux, Tor (and Virtual Box when using Virtual Machine images).

Build script is written in #!/bin/bash. Different from Live DVDs (such as
Tails, Liberte Linux). Persistent (non-live) operating system.

Providing ready made Virtual Machine images for Virtual Box or instructions
for setting up Whonix with physical isolation.

==== Other Software Required: ====
Its a derivative of Debian. Therefore it has many dependencies. See
debian/control in Whonix source folder for a full list of dependencies.

Only uses packages from the Debian main archive. No packages from contrib or
non-free are used. Therefore only Free Software licenses are used.

==== Other Comments: ====
Latest source code is managed in git:

In essence, Whonix is a big build script to create .ova (open virtualization
format) Virtual Machine images or to install itself on hardware. The build
script itself is GPLv3.

It contains many configuration files, GPLv3, some of them are too small and
adding a GPLv3 license text above would make the GPLv3 license text bigger
than the config itself.

It also contains many scripts, GPLv3. To keep the scripts short, I'd prefer
not to add a GPLv3 text above all of them. But if you tell me, thats a
requirements, I'll do it.

The very few scripts not written by me (tails_htp) have their license text
above the script itself and its all Free Software as well.

I love Free Software and anything entering my source codes is always
thoroughly checked to be listed on the list of Free Software approved
