    Using BackTrack as your first foray into Linux (yes, that's how its spelled) is destined to fail if your effort to learn is equal to your effort to communicate intelligently.

    Lunix is an OS that works exclusively on the moon and it was written by the green cheese elves.
    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.

    Then your Lunix will work from Kentucky

    I doubt it. Maybe the OP should be come a Mac user. They're about as mindless as you can get.

    Most unlikely, no other distribution will take you by the hand like Ubuntu does and prevents you from messing something up bad time without sudoing.

    So it can be considered the most userfriendly and beginnersafe Linux distro out there in my opinion.

    My bad I guess, I assumed "i tryt ubuntu 1time but whit lancable" meant he'd tried Ubuntu once (successfully) with a wired connection.
    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.
