+Acknowledgements
+================
+
+ - Tails could not exist without [[Debian|https://www.debian.org/]],
+ [[Debian Live|http://live.debian.net]], and
+ [[Tor|https://www.torproject.org/]]; see our
+ [[contribute/relationship with upstream]] document for details.
+ - Tails was inspired by the [[Incognito
+ LiveCD|http://web.archive.org/web/20090220133020/http://anonymityanywhere.com/]]. The
+ Incognito author declared it to be dead on March 23rd, 2010, and
+ wrote that Tails "should be considered as its spiritual
+ successor".
+ - The [[Privatix Live-System|http://mandalka.name/privatix/]] an
+ early source of inspiration, too.
+ - Some ideas (in particular
+ [[tordate|contribute/design/Time_syncing]] and improvements to our
+ [[contribute/design/memory_erasure]] procedure) were borrowed from
+ [Liberté Linux](http://dee.su/liberte).
