Kid-tested and Snowden approved – is Subgraph, the privacy-oriented OS, now ready for humans?

In early 2016, David Mirza Ahmad, president of Subgraph, announced their OS as a public alpha. The announcement took place at the Logan CIJ Symposium, which is dedicated to fighting surveillance and censorship, and was greeted warmly by Edward Snowden himself [1].

Ahmad also advised, "The Internet is more hostile than it's ever been. Subgraph is addressing that problem."

Since then, he and the rest of the four-man team in Montreal have been devoting themselves to developing Subgraph. Most recently, their efforts have culminated in Subgraph Alpha r3 with a range of news apps and security features [2] (Figure 1). The project is backed financially by the US government-sponsored Open Technology Fund, which is also behind privacy-oriented distros like Qubes OS and Tails.
