Wow you guys are quick to judge lol. I am working for a company now that supports large corporations networks and infrastructure... I went on a job with someone and they were doing security testing and became interested in it so one of my superiors recommended playing with BackTrack a bit....

You do realise it was your judgemental comment that sparked all the negative replies?

A specialist penetration testing OS didn't provide you with the polished desktop experience you craved and so you judged the entire of Linux's community as being inappropriate for consumers.

In either case, I stand by my early comments: give Mint a try and read up on pen testing online. Then download a few tools from Mints repositories and test them out on your home network. You'll have a much better experience doing this than playing around with BT and stand to learn a great deal more in the process too.

Ok... Thanks. I thought you were saying I should just use Mint as a desktop OS and forget all the stuff I needed to use backtrack for.... That's why said what I said before. I am using it in a live boot flash drive situation. Anyways will give that a try for sure. Thanks for recommending it. To show how much of a noob I am I didn't know that you could get all the tools in backtrack outside of it... I thought you had to use backtrack to use those tools.

To back up Plan9, you could take ANY distribution and make a persistant pen installation. Get the tools you need for wifi testing, and you've got backtrack with a polished opsys. Honestly backtrack is made just to have the tools, not to have any user experience. Your supposed to know how to use it before using it, that's the point of having a specialized tool.
