Well, Tails is Debian set to be as secure as possible by default and an amnesic OS, that is, an OS that will run entirely in your memory without ever touching your hard drive. The idea is the non persistence - and precisely non persistence of malware. It routes every connection through the tor network, so that you never make a clear connection to a server. I would recommend it to someone who really takes risks on the net, say an activist, a whistleblower, or any illegal action. If nothing stays on the disk and after you shut down your PC the memory in a few seconds got flushed, then there is no proof of wrongdoing. The downside is that Tails is slow, even when you run it from a USB.
