"The beauty of Linux and other Free Software operating systems
is that you can roll your own, and load any type of applications
and tools that you want on it. That freedom to tinker has given us
distributions that are specialized for desktop, server, router and
multimedia use. It has also given us distributions that are
targeted at security professionals.
"One of those, is BackTrack, a hackers delight, one that is
loaded with all the best Free Software and Open Source penetration
testing applications available. The latest edition is BackTrack 5,
code-named Revolution. We are actually at BackTrack 5 R2. Keep in
mind that BackTrack is not a distribution for newbies. This is
serious stuff. "
