This most liekly this is a complete nub question, but here it goes. Ok, when I read about peoples' distros choice, they often have different ones for differnt things. For example i read one where the guy was like for hacking i prefer gentoo,..then went on. And on slashdot.org i sometimes read about hacking knoppix or what have you. What is this meant by hacking? I am assuming it is not being used in the manner, hacking a computer or data base from a remote computer/station. Just curious.
