Did you know that R3 came out? You probably already have the update, it's just an "apt-get dist-upgrade".
It's funny, I actually learned linux on BT5. It's brutally unforgiving, so I learned very quickly.
Nowadays I consider myself a good enough linux user to be able to work my way around the OS via command line or the GUI equally as efficiently.
I have yet to compile a program (make, make-install) - haven't had the need to yet.
I have yet to make a full program with a GTK interface and an installer. If I do make an installer, i'll just tarball the damn thing.
I also have yet to actually use all of BT's tools. Most are preference, anyway.
I use BT to pentest my website and any servers I own (once a month or so. I wish I could do more, but I actually have a life)
Usually i'll just throw armitage at it, but every now and then i'll do something that actually has a chance of working.
Occasionally i'll get a pentest request. I'm actually very proficient at getting into routers and grabbing passwords and other goodies from home/office computers.
What do you use it for?
