Description: "BackTrack 4 final is out and along with this release come some exciting news, updates, and developments. BackTrack 4 has been a long and steady road, with the release of a beta last year, we decided to hold off on releasing BackTrack 4 final until it was perfected in every way, shape and form. This release includes a new kernel, a larger and expanded toolset repository, custom tools that you can only find on BackTrack, and more importantly, fixes to all major bugs that we knew of. This release has received an overwhelming support from the community and we are grateful to everyone who has contributed to the success of this release."

Pros: forensics, communications, no footprints
Cons: none that i've found

this is like having sherlock holmes by your side

if you are the teeniest bit of a nerd then this is excellent

more of a toolbox (no garage) than a 'day to day' desktop if you will - although you can do that too.

everything that this distro can do you can do with other distros if you are prepared to put the time and effort in to find, compile and install.

it is just about everything you need for hacking, spying, forensics etc. is all put together here in one place

everyone should have this somewhere at hand it is so useful.

i bet MI5, the CIA, Mossad et al. have this on usb sticks

courses are available to turn you into a super geek

all in all this is the bruce lee of linux martial arts
