    These people would not know what to do with backtrack when they got it , if they cant at least do the above.
    So why bother paying for it then
    ( i bloody hate ebay anyhow lol)
    That explains a lot of the questions we've been getting lately.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    that sucks that all that energy goes into making the software and this ends up happening.

    I'm just wondering what the chances are of people selling these disks embedding their own rootkits / backdoors into the OS....

    I bought one of those magazines that comes with BT. They threw some commercial software onto the live CD and threw their own CD label on it. Shitty magazine, BTW.

    Default Tbh, Ithink many of you are failing to see the whole picture

    Hi,

    I mean for someone to know the very name - Back|Track means they know it's a free open source OS. Therefore people that buy this either cannot for some reason download it whether it be due to them having dialup connections or no internet at all (using a library computer or something to purchase it for home non-internet use)

    ..I reckon you really gotta look outside the box here in this instance.

    The guy aint gonna make it rich selling one of the cd's a week or whatever but will be doing good to people that couldn't get any other way.

    I've tried writing this twice already, submit and browser mysteries wipe it out, perhaps I should heed the signs and not try, but I do also like pretending to be smart about something

    Licensing being one

    There is nothing illegal at all with the CD distribution for $, as there is nothing illegal about any of us making a $ at consulting, integration services, or someone offering support services.

    GPL at least facilitates and perhaps encourages this kind of free market. Free doesn't mean no competition.

    back|Track may see this as a value added service which they have no interest to get into. Although its a free market so if they wanted to get into the CD distribution they could. They can put a link to the CD guys website on the project page, and ask for 10% of all revenues, etc.

    Back|Track, if concerned - and it appears they are not -, could put trademark restrictions on their logos, name, graphics and then not give permission to copy their trademarked material. This putting a real damper on people distributing the software as they need to remove all such trademarks first. this approach is not violating GPL and is exactly what Redhat does,

    Don't know where you got the mag but I bought mine both in the us
    and they were $14.99 plus tax each and they both have the backtrack cd
    issue 6/2007 (13) vol. 2 no. 6
    and issue 4/2007 (11) vol. 2 no. 4
    Now I am not 100% sure on this but I believe that hakin9 paid some money to the backtrack dev team. when we surf over to: http://www.remote-exploit.org/services.html

    then we can see: Complete Replacement:
