Questions tagged [kali]

Questions that are only about Kali Linux and not about Ubuntu are off-topic here! Please ask them on Unix & Linux Q&A. Kali Linux is a Linux distribution based on Debian. It is often used for security testing and comes with a huge set of tools for that. It is not a general-purpose Linux desktop distribution. Kali may also refer to a drawing program in Ubuntu - https://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=kali&searchon=names&suite=all&section=all
