    Whoa slow down there, the OP was not trying to "put a name in the dirt" but rather make a simple comparison.

    i would have to agree backtrack is not for noobs and yet theres still people asking how to do things...
    They ran this hack in V.M.O., so I'm isolating the A.P.I., and just booting the host. -Matthew Farrell

    Just thought I’d add in my 2 pence....

    Personally the first ever Linux distribution I came across and used was Backtrack2 and I’ve not looked back since! I think it depends on what you’re initially trying to achieve and your reasons for learning Linux in the first place. For me it was specifically for security analysis and as Backtrack is so highly focused on penetration testing I can’t think of a better Linux distribution to start with. If you have the dedication, commitment and passion to learn and get stuck in at the deep end then you will find that you will pick up all of the basics along the way!

    I don’t disagree that people completely new to Linux perhaps should experiment with easier distributions first before moving onto backtrack, but just because someone is new to Linux and put into the ‘Noob’ bracket, doesn’t mean that they are not a highly intelligent human being that would take to backtrack like a duck to water!
