Backtrack uses slapt-get.
I'm getting myself a laptop soon, that will be used for general office/browsing/email stuff, as well as Penetration testing. The laptop I'm looking at is a Dell Vostro (I don't have much cash :\)
Because of this, I'm thinking about using BackTrack as my OS. I'm thinking about installing apt on it though, to make adding new software easier. Has anyone else tried this, and if so, do you have any advice/suggestions?
