I was considering dual booting a distro of linux on my laptop.
My first pick was going to be BackTrack5 but I have read if you have not used linux in a while it would not be a good distro to start out on again.
Any suggestions? I will be doing a lot of testing of networks. Packet sniffing, etc. etc.
I need something that will work with my system.
i7 2ghz processor. 8gb ram. Nvidia gforce 460m.
I was looking at kubuntu but it requires me to swap out the kernel to use multi processors.
