    BlackUbuntu or Kali Linux?

    Hello fellow Ubuntu users, I have been doing some penetration testing with my BackTrack 5 r3 distribution(strictly on my own network in controlled conditions ). I was 90% satisfied and it did the job. But in meantime Kali Linux, a direct descendant of BackTrack was released and I wanted to try it, unfortunately, I had no time for it and I have also discovered that another pen testing OS exists and it was Black Ubuntu and as I've heard it's still pretty much beta. I am asking if someone has tried either both Kali and Black Ubuntu or just one of them, to kindly let me know which is a better solution for pen testing. If you encountered any bugs, glitches and your overall impression.

    Thank you, any information would be useful.
    My regards, stay brutal.

    Actually, you can use ANY ubuntu derivative just fine; and simply add the backbox ppa. It really is that simple

    Yes I know I can use any Ubuntu-derived pen-testing software, but thank you for your kind reply.
    I guess it is time to get myself a backbox and try it out.

    Thanks, my regards. Stay brutal.

    Kali Linux - it's the new backtrack

    a new quesitons what does backbox ppa do actually (for example if you use Kubutnu at the moment)? install only the programes or also the desktop environment, kernel and such?!
