Ubuntu Based Linux Security Distro..

Another Linux Security - penetration testing Distro has just been released by tech4master , it’s called Protech! Since Protech is an Ubuntu based Linux Security Distro, it is known to have the most compatible hardware detection system. The review I read on fusion’s blog said something like this:

"My personal favourite is the Ubuntu based Protech ONE distro. I suggest it over other live security distros because of the Ubuntu cores’ hardware compatibility. Most other distros have several problems when it comes to newer computers, especially laptops. I have booted this cd on several of my computers and never had a single problem so far. The other reason I suggest it is the simplicity of aptitude for installing packages. Although most Ubuntu package repositories are noted for having out of date versions of software, they are tested and working. For a Linux newbie, compiling programs, resolving dependencies, and proper configuration can be the biggest turn off."
