is this better than bactrack5?

I personally prefer bugtraq. With backtrack I've had many problems but with bugtraq none of them.
I have to say that bugtraq requires linux knowledge because it has not as much wiki as backtrack.

If you choose any of them I will recommend that you download the ubuntu version( debian is awful for this type of distros).

I hope this helps.

man some time ago I downloaded bactrack kde version x64 I watched many tutorials and do everything step by step but when I try to install this error is comming and comming if you help me I'll give you all credits that I have ))

Have you install it on a virtual machine? If so, download the version for virtualbox.
Have you tried with gnome? That worked for me. Then, you can change from gnome to kde.
Im don't think this may happen but try to sudo apt-get update && apt-get upgrade .

If any of these work let me know. I changed to Bugtraq because everything that I tried to do in backtrack didn't work as good as in bugtraq.

Nice Article ROADWALKER. And Welcome to Nullbyte. Have got a Small bunch of Questions.Do Bugtraq have the same tools like Backtrack. Or it have got more. Is kali Better then both of them? Which one of them is Better for a person like me who is new to hacking Environment? & Will you post hacking tutorials on Bugtraq in future?

Waiting for the Response...

Fisrt I am doing a tutorial right now but im going on vacations so I will posted when i arrive. I you are "new" download backtrack 5 r3 ( my favourite is gnome). Bugtraq has more or less the same tools as backtrack. I dont like Kali because is based on debian instead of ubuntu.
