The fictional version of Linux from Cory Doctorow's new book "Little Brother" shall soon be fiction no longer.

I kid you not. ParanoidLinux is coming soon to a computer near you. Perhaps even an iPhone.

Thanks Boing Boing!

Ah! I need to get the book next time I go to B&N! Can someone inform me of what the OS in the book is like?
You can print it online, free at his website : Craphound
Mind you, Doctrow takes quite a bit of artistic licence, but its basically a uber-secure distro. The net connections are taken with highest priority of being safe, and Doctrow outlined a pretty convoluted method. These people are aiming for the core concept outlined, not trying to actualy mimic the book.
Ah! The polar opposite of Windows! Genius!
Yes! Call it tf-o-sorc-im. (tf)Totally freaky (o)open (sorc)source (im)interface mechanism. And it's the exact backward of microsoft!

I love that book!
I'm a little bit out of subject but, talking about paranoia, does anyone have any idea on how to make a camera jammer ? I was thinking about strong IR lights blinding the CCDs, but it was just an idea... Anyway I'll surely make a thread on the forums.

If you're talking security cameras, then, yes. Check it.
