BackTrack Reborn - Kali Linux

From Offensive Security:

It’s been 7 years since we released our first version of BackTrack Linux, and the ride so far has been exhilarating. When the dev team started talking about BackTrack 6 (almost a year ago), each of us put on paper a few “wish list goals” that we each wanted implemented in our “next version”.

It soon became evident to us that with our 4 year old development architecture, we would not be able to achieve all of these new goals without a massive restructure so that’s exactly what we did and “Kali” was born. We’ve also posted a Kali Linux teaser on the BackTrack Linux site – and that’s all we’ll say for now…

How does this affect the Offensive Security courses? Surprisingly enough, with all the new changes we have made in Kali, the user experience remains pretty much the same. Our students should feel little difference between Kali and BackTrack. As usual, with our course upgrades, all alumni will be able to upgrade their course materials for a reduced fee. Students who have enrolled in PWB since the 1st of Jan, 2013 will get an additional discount on the upgrade fee –  once a new version of PWB is available, in the next 6 months. Our lab environment will not be changing due to the new BackTrack version. Be patient, we will release more information about Kali once it’s ready…soon.

As always, looking forward to seeing what they've done with it.

Man, BT and PWB are hogging all the resources. This is why we can't have nice things. I'd rather have AWAE online than stock footage of stuff being smashed.

Re: BackTrack Reborn - Kali Linux

I wonder if Kali will be an evolution or a revolution...

Still, I am always excited to use new distros.

Maybe if we make this post long enough Offensive Security will take notice.

Re: BackTrack Reborn - Kali Linux

Although I agree with all of you, we were able to have a quality PWB course and a very good linux distro because they have spent some time in the past building and fixing them.

They probably make 90% of their proifit with the PWB course, so we can't blame them to update it every 3 years or so...

So yes, me too I can't wait to get AWAE, but we have to understand their position too...

C-c-c-combo breaker!

I think we all realize that PWB's their bread and butter, but they should seriously try harder at making AWAE available ;)

First time I hear about this. I won't do this again, promise!

Yes, I totally agree if you see it this way! They pissed me off big time with their Try Harder thing, so you know what?
