But I'm curious what counts as "experience" with linux.
I've tried ubuntu and debian, and can figure out how to do most things with the internet and the commands "man", "help", and "info". I know my way around the filesystem (It makes so much more sense than the windows one! ), and I know a bit about file permissions. Do I count as experienced?
And also, why not use BT as your main distro?
By experience, I mean having an understanding of what everything does, how to get around, how to trouble shoot issues, etc... If you feel confident, and you know what you are doing; feel free to step up your linux distro into something more advanced.
As for BT, I say not to use it as a main operating system because it isn't meant for that. It's not meant for everyday use such as downloading pictures, making graphics, downloading music, browsing the web, etc. It was made for a purpose to pentest. By using it as your main os, if not careful, you will probably notice that it isn't as stable as some other linux operating systems such as ubuntu. Also, the more junk you pile onto it as a main os, could potential be making your system more vulnerable and detectable than it initially is supposed to be.
