Hands-On: Kali Linux Light (Xfce) and Mini distributionsJan 26, 2016, 08:00 (0 Talkback[s])
It seems to me that there are two reasons for the Kali Light distribution. First, a lot of people don't like using Gnome 3 -- especially a lot of experienced Linux users -- so this offers a popular alternative desktop. Second, by including very few additional security packages, it lets you build up the distribution with just the tools you want and need.
