Consider mentioning video memory issues that Tails has

Since Tails is currently being recommended for counter-forensics purposes, we should explicitly state what issues they have in terms of that. One known issue that Tails has is that it does not erase video memory upon a restart (only on a shutdown).

When you restart your computer after using Tails, it might briefly display the last screen that was displayed in Tails.



I never even thought about it until I just read this. It absolutely does do that.

Yeah, my regular Ubuntu-based Linux does that too.
