Re: BackTrack 5

I'm greedy and I have BT4 as a dual boot (with ubuntu) on the laptop and the main OS on my 'other' PC (lower spec non gaming one).  'Other' PC still has enough guts to allow me to run two VM's at a time as targets.

Re: BackTrack 5

i still have it as a VM on my system, but i have great expectations for BT5, if it is more OS worthy (proper video driver/resolution support, flawless packets/application integration from the repositories etc.) it will become my main operating system. The new ubuntu (especially unity) is working on my nerves :o

I've been thinking of building a new virtual lab, this might help light the fire. Maybe an SSD card for my netbook. But nothing just because of it, or for it to live on by itself.

On the right side of the blog page http://www.backtrack-linux.org/blog/ they have a counter, for all those who want a more specific ETA giving time zones and such.

Re: BackTrack 5

Interesting, posted by Muts the day before the release on @backtracklinux:

Someone doesn't want a BackTrack 5 release tomorrow. DOS on our backtrack-linux.org web server. Whoever it is, please stop.


And then:
DOS Mitigation by polite request. Looks like it worked. See you all tomorrow!


I am sure this isn't a DoS, it's just me and a bunch of guys hitting "refresh" to be the first getting the new release!  ;D

Re: BackTrack 5

Getting mine as well. I went with the basic gnome_vm_32 for my makeshift lab-on-a-laptop to get a looksee. What is everyone else grabbing?

Re: BackTrack 5

Grabbing everything but ARM :).  I will seed for quite a while, though.  Anyone with a beef against torrenting has obviously never tried to get a day-of-release distro!!!
