Features, Office The Tor Desktop Virtual Privacy Machine is a USB JumpDrive preloaded with a complete Linux OS and a roster of useful applications. Plug it into a Windows or Linux machine and launch a virtual Linux desktop that routes all network traffic through multiple network proxies using the Tor network. This provides a totally secure way to access your data, even when using an internet cafe PC or an untrusted network.

You are correct in punching holes in my Cybercafe scenario. If you're on an untrusted computer, a keystroke logger or screen grabber would be a potential weak spot. And "totally secure" is probably too strong a term to use when describing anything computer-related.
