I personally have no problem whatsoever offering whatever help I can to people that have legitimate reasons to use it. In fact, I'm sure I can remember doing just that, and they were able to solve their problem from memory.

But if we are being honest, a lot of Kali threads here are people that do not have any legitimate reason to use it, and it's usually all too obvious to me when I see a thread where the poster has a misguided belief that either; "it's cool" and that's about the only reason they are using it, or they are going to somehow learn a lot more than what they would if they'd picked something like Ubuntu instead. It's complete nonsense that "you won't learn anything by using something like Ubuntu". You should also bear in mind that I'm no fan of Ubuntu either, and haven't used it as my "daily driver" for years now.

At the end of the day, it's designed to be used as a "live system" or inside a VM, and *not* for general purposes. And a part of helping someone is being honest with them about that.
