BackTrack

The boys (and girls) down there at BackTrack just got it right. Will anyone else actually win this poll? When I want to test a systems security without prejudice, I use BT4.

I use Gentoo install CD for this purpose . SystemRescueCD is similar, it only has some applications more.. However the important thing is chroot .

Helix was the best until it wasn't free anymore. BackTrack gets the nod now.
