    Question BT as main distro?

    I haven't installed BT yet because I have to buy a modem/router to use it. But I want to ask you that have installed it. I liked it more than other distros and I want to use it as my main distro. Is that possible or it is just made to be a live cd?

    it's still possible....BUT

    bt2 is security pentesting oriented....means most of soft are forensics one...you will need to install many usual soft.....

    and bt is a live cd......

    best thing is to install bt on usb and have a dual boot ubuntu 7.1/xp.....

    just my 2 cents

    Dual/triple booting is a common and popular way to run BT2.

    I agree it would not work as a main os. I have 1 laptop with bt/xp and another laptop with unbuntu and vista

    Feasibly, yes you could run B|T as your main OS - I wouldn't recommend it though.

    At home I use B|T in its LiveCD mode only, at work I have a triple-boot setup (Ubuntu as my main OS, B|T, and Windows XP just in case).

    Run it as your main distro for a little to see if it gives you everything you need, if not, then dual boot with a different more daily-use-friendly distro like Ubuntu.

    You all use ubuntu as main? I know that it is user-friendly and stuff like that but why not using another distro like Debian?

    People use wide variety of distros and OSs. I wouldn't say that we "all" use Ubuntu based on what a couple of people said. Just don't want this thread to turn into another one of those Linux distro wars.

    Personally, I use Mandrake. Why?? It has a cool name of course! A Mandrake, according to the Knights of the Templar and medieval history, were a type of mini Dragon. I'd say about the size of an Eagle or a Buzzard.

    But on a more serious note...Yes you can use BT2 as your main distro. Why do people not advise this?? I believe its because you have to manually install and configure all the extras and bells and whistles that normally come with more popular Linux Distros. In other words..were afraid you'll **** up BT2 and blame us..and bring all your questions on how to install this module and that module..why doesn't this soft work/ or why isn't it compatiable with BT2....etc.. We just don't want to deal with your mistakes. Get it??
