Is Ubuntu Good for Hacking ?


Yes, it is good but not recommended. The recommended operating systems for hacking are Kali Linux and Parrot OS as they are dedicated for hacking and pentesting with ready-to-use tools and apps.

So, I recommend using Kali Linux for hacking and pentesting. And I do not recommend using it as your main operating system. What is my general purpose OS I recommend ? It’s Ubuntu for sure.

Why use a dedicated OS for hacking and pentesting ?

Installing apps, programs, tools for hacking and pentesting one by one is a huuuuuuuuuge time consuming. And if you choose to install what you need when you need it, it seems good but it is not. You’ll need to install some packages from apt and some from source, some packages source code are hosted on github, but some are hosted on gitlab, and some other packages are on bitbucket or even sourceforge.

It is way too complicated to install what you need when you need it. It is better to have a dedicated hacking operating system such as Kali Linux or Parrot Os.
