Hi guys, I was reading a post about the 'competition' and the discussion that ensued but I wasn't able to reply (possibly locked thread or whatnot) and not sure if anyone knows or cares but Blackbuntu appears to be out of the game. The domain has been closed as of yesterday.
So they are either waiting to see what their options are or they are out.

I think this speaks pretty highly for the Backtrack dev team (and all of you guys on the forum here doing a great job) in that you have kept this going for such a long time and continue to offer great service and support to all users in the open source community.

Well done.

Also, in case you wondered or cared, the reason I know is because I run a deca-boot system and I was checking for an update yesterday. BT is still my favourite . BB is for when I'm lazy
