I have read somewhere taht Backtrack is a Ubuntu Linux.

I am confused. I know quite well that Backtrack is a Linux, but apparently Backtrack is also an Ubuntu. Please, clarify me this.

  • Backtrack uses Ubuntu as a base, but it is highly moddified, including a custom kernel. As such it is off topic here, try asking the backtrack project. – Panther Mar 4 '13 at 18:38
