    Default 64 bit version

    Please make a 64 bit version of backtrack 3 also. It would be better

    It would? Perhaps you could be specific.
    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.

    Because 64 is more than 32. Therefore it's 32 more better.
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    Thanks for clearing that up streaker

    I'm still waiting for the OP's thoughts though.

    No problem, I'm sure the OP's answer will be just as concise.

    What do you understand? We're still waiting to hear why a 64 bit version would be better.

    I would also like a 64 bit version too....and the correct answer as to why is simple: in my testing of john without mpi enabled, a 64 bit cpu way outperforms a single core 32 bit system in password cracking. With mpi enabled, a dual-core 64 bit system see's rather astronomical results compared to a dual-core 32 bit system with mpi enabled. I don't think 64 bit would help in a cluster cause you still have a network bottleneck.

    Now, password hacking should theoretically also equal faster brute forces of anything......such as wep.

    The 64 bit version will create a huge problem....and that is that most of the applications on backtrack are written specifically for 32 bit systems. Although some of the applications have been ported to 64 bit.....I bet a lot of the windows executables can't...and anything that has source code available would take time to port if it hasn't already been done.

    A more realistic request would be to have 64 bit sometime in the future, not necessarily with version 3.

    The john benchmarks are on my web site at edwiget.name I may not have finished all the tables cause of hardware issues that were resolved but I simply never finished the tests. I think the posted results are clear enough.

    Well while were making requests, I'd like an 8 bit version.
