Hands on with Caine Linux: Pentesting and UEFI compatible

Nov 25, 2014, 05:00 (0 Talkback[s])

Wow, do I have mixed feelings about Caine Linux. First and foremost, it is a Linux-based forensic analysis system which is UEFI-compatible. However, while it is reasonably easy to boot as a Live DVD or USB system, I found it to be rather difficult to install, and quite complicated to use. 

There are a variety of special-purpose Linux distributions which I can easily imagine being used for everyday work - Kali Linux, Knoppix, AV Linux and others. But I have difficult time imagining even an experienced Linux user using Caine for everyday tasks.
