Does anyone actually use Kali Linux for something serious instead of feeling like a hax0r?

    Here's a photo of someone using it for serious work.

    Hardly.. My bro used to use Kali as main os, but smth didn't work out. And the fact that you are root by default - it's just wrong..

    @netikras I think I read somewhere that it was going to change, but yeah...

    I used it once or twice a long time ago as a VM to have fun, but that's pretty much it.

    I use all the tools of Kali on Manjaro.
    No use using a distro that has an issue every two weeks (once, the kernel was replaced by a file that only said "fuck you")

    Yes, for the first 1-7 days after moving to a new appartement and needing internet.

    Let's be honest, it's way easier than going to talk to the neighbors

    I've used it as main OS for a while but just distrohopped away after some time 😄

    @NoToJavaScript installing bettercap along with the dumping tools isn't that hard on other distros though, now is it?

    @kescherRant Well boot on a default Kali USB key with everything preinstalled is even faster. Not even need to install it

    Only need it for 1 hour or something

    @NoToJavaScript Ok, but the distro is still crappy for a lot of other reasons (root by default, apparently the maintainers can't secure their repos properly, ...)

    @kescherRant Never used it for more than a day to say something tbh

    You're not supposed to use Kali as your daily driver. It's just a set of tools bundled together in a pre-configured environment, hence the default root user.

    AFAIK no, even a person I know that works for security uses a highly personalized version of gentoo

    No one with any sense, it's just debian with tools and some specialized configuration. It's not meant to be a desktop OS.
