Cyborg Linux – More advanced, beautiful and poweful than Kali Linux

Cyborg Linux (AKA: Cyborg Hawk) is a Ubuntu (currently the most popular Unix-like OS) based penetration testing Linux distro, specially designed for hackers or cyber security experts to perform all kinds of network security penetration testing, assessment, computer forensics and more.

Compared with currently the most famous penetration testing OS Kali Linux, Cyborg Linux has the 3 advantages at least:

  • More advanced – Supports all kinds of test related work, including mobile security and malware analysis
  • Much more powerful – Comes with ultimate collection of 750+ pre-installed excellent security related tools (Kali – 300+)
  • More beautiful & user-friendly – Based on the most mature and widely-used Ubuntu (rather than Kali Linux’s Debian)

AppNee wants everyone to know, for any Linux distro, whether it would eventually become popular is determined by many factors, such as: UI design, compatibility, even small thing like font rendering. But the crucial factor lies in its software source’s mirror stations. If it’s not enough open source mirror sites around the world, then that inevitably leads to very poor UE on the software download and update. For the moment, Kali Linux monopolizes the upper hand among all similar Linux distros. I think, this is also the key point for Cyborg Linux to win. If it could deal with this well, eventually, it can become the biggest threat of BackTrack Linux‘s successor – Kali Linux.
