I wrote the developers I doubt we will see Wine on T.A.I.L.S.
Aslo the developers do not like truecrypt
"... Tails developers do not recommend TrueCrypt. We include TrueCrypt only to allow users of the (old and now unsupported) Incognito live system to access the data on previously created media. In the future, we would like to provide proper alternatives and stop distributing TrueCrypt. This means that you should not create new TrueCrypt media if you intend to stay with Tails in the long run."
I would say that backtrack 5 R3 is still the best choice at the moment
Please add Wine and TrueCrypt

Hello recently I wrote an article about avoiding banking trojans and bots on http://www.ethicalhacker.net
using Backtrack 5 r3 live cd. I thought that Backtrack 5 r3 was okay for the power user, but not the common user. Then I was told about Tails my only complaint with it is the lack of Wine and TrueCrypt. It would be awsome if you could add Wine and TrueCrypt to the live cd.

TrueCrypt is already included in Tails, please refer to the doc:https://tails.boum.org/doc/encryption_a ... truecrypt/
Regarding Wine, Tails is not meant to be a general purpose operating
system but a selection of tools designed to answer some particular use
cases, see our design doc:https://tails.boum.org/contribute/design/
Apart from the fact that I really doubt we want to encourage people
running probably non-free software through Wine. How would Wine help us
fulfil better our goals?
