  1. overall, mac is the best for black hats,

  2. Mac are you kidding me. any UNIX based OS (FreeBSD or Linux type distro) is more proficient.

  3. any BSD (Open, Net, Free, Frenzy, etc.) or high end/ raw Linux (e.g Arch, Debian, or Fedora)

    • Fedora?! i thought it’s a beginner level learning OS? I just started to learn from it,. hasn’t seen anything is very fami;oar with Backtract…but Overall, i think Backtrack is more proficient in Hacking basic system (Wifi)
