Forum Thread: Is Linux OS Necessary ?

hello guys. I am new to Null Byte. I was wondering if Linux is necessary for using all these tools. I read fair bit of articles and in each of those Linux was used.

I am active Windows user, though I know fair bit of linux.

Any serious hacker will use Linux; there is just no debate about it. Most, if not, all tools are created specifically for Linux.

If you want success, go with Linux.


thnx GHOST_


Welcome to Null Byte!

To answer your question, I have an article titled "Why Every Hacker Should Know and Use Linux". Hope that helps. In addition, for those new to Linux, I have a series here titled "Linux Basics for the Aspiring Hacker".


thnx OTW for your answer. I was wondering whether Ubuntu or Kali Linux would do the job. Can you point me to the right direction. thnx
