Ubuntu, Backtrack, or Kubuntu with security tools?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 14, 2012
Hey everybody. I have been using Ubuntu for around a year now on a 4 year old HP laptop I set up to duel boot with vista. Recently I am finding I want to learn more about Terminal and some security stuff.
I am also seriously considering formatting the drive and going with Linux only. But I am hung up wondering what Distro I should go with.
I Have been using Ubuntu 10.10, so I have not used Unity. I hate to say it with out trying it, but I have not liked what I have seen of unity in videos so far.
Also like I said above I have interest in some security and the tools in BackTrack but it only a hobby really. So I honestly don't need everything included with it. I also know that even though BT is more stable now it is still default root user and somethings are still not optimized to be your surf internet/watch youtube type of machine.
So I am looking for some guidance, should I just bite the bullet and try Backtrack as a main OS and make it do what I want, with lots of trial a
Ubuntu vs. Backtrack...

What is the difference between Ubuntu and back track? Like I know it's different Kernels, but why tho? Is it merely just a deb system with all the pen-test tools installed in it for convenience? Could I just download the tools and install them in ubuntu? I use back track for a variety of reasons, but it's fugly looking.

I know that this is not a PenTesting forum but since both of the above distro's are based on Ubuntu, I wondered which one anyone reading this prefers as why?

I tested the backtrack firewall with shields up website. It's firewall is better then ubuntu. You have to run backtrack as a root user unlike ubuntu.
Backtrack is used for hacking though does this mean it's better for keeping your computer safe from hackers. thanks for helping out a newb.
P.S. I am talking about the os only. I know the tools on backtrack will keep your os secure also.
Backtrack 5 tools in 11.04

I recently got my macbookpro5,5 fully working with Ubuntu 11.04. One question i have though, is would it be possible to add the backtrack 5 tools (i.e. a repository, etc.) into this build of Ubuntu?
I tried following these steps (http://www.zimbio.com/Ubuntu+Linux/a...cations+Ubuntu), but i am unable to ping: repo.offensive-security.com (which leads me to believe they changed the repo).
Any help is appreciated!

Need Security penetration BackTrack vs nUbuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 23, 2009
Now that I have a good laptop (IBM T40, yay) I can atcually install a penetration oriented OS. The problem is that i have three choice:
a) BackTrack (Ubuntu based, but moving to Debian)
b) nUbuntu (Ubuntu based, duh)
c) Use the installed 9.04 and install all good security penetration package. No idea what to install.
Can someone which distribution will be the best method? If c), can you also please tell me what are the good tools for security penetration/hacking?
Should I install Ubuntu or Backtrack first?

I am planning on having a triple boot setup on my laptop with Windows 7 (soon 8), Ubuntu, and Backtrack. I have read up on setting up dual and triple boot systems, and it seems like some operating systems like to replace the existing GRUB with their own bootloader. Both Backtrack and Ubuntu use GRUB for multi-boot installations. Does it matter what order I install them in? Right now the computer only has Windows on it.
Difference between Backtrack & Ubuntu, best solution.

Hello. I like typing commands, and I've used Ubuntu before but that's a long time ago. Never really got into it. I have a few questions.
Is there anything I can do on Backtrack that I can't do on Ubuntu, and the other way around? Is it possible to install both Backtrack, Ubuntu and Windows 7 as dual boot? Would Backtrack be hard for a person with limited Linux experience?
Is there any way to run Ubuntu in tty7 and Backtrack or another distro in tty8?

Hi, I was wondering if there's any way to run 2 distros and 2 xservers at the same time:
I'm starting to use backtrack for educational purposes, I'm following a course in security and I'm starting to use Backtrack. Nevertheless I actually love the functionality of Ubuntu and The new design of unity (even though has a lower performance than others).
Currently I have both installed in my computer, but each time I want to use backtrack I have to reboot my pc, and when I want to return to ubuntu, I have to reboot again, and it's starting to be really annoying...
If running the 2 distros at the same time isn't possible. Is there any way to install ubuntu packets on ubuntu
