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.
