Linutop OS

Intruders beware, because the new Linutop OS 14.04 is here—the easiest way to set up an ultra-secure PC, says its maker Linutop. Linutop OS 14.04 is a customized version of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS that comes loaded with the light XFCE classic graphic environment, as well as an array of ready-to-use Linux applications, such as Firefox 28, LibreOffice 4, VLC 2 and Linutop Kiosk. Version 14.04 offers three core enhancements, namely a Linutop Kiosk for a secured Internet access point, Digital Signage functionality for display of any media type and enhanced security and privacy. Linutop's system can be locked in read-only mode, preventing alterations by viruses or other mishaps. Linutop requires only a minimal HD space (850MB) and requires minimal processing power: PIII 800MHz and 512MB of RAM. Linutop OS can be installed quickly on a hard drive, USB key or Flash memory.
