So…I’m looking at getting into cybersecurity/ethical hacking, and I’m already tackling learning the command line.
But regardless of what I’m learning or researching at any given time, one thing I’m always hearing is “Use Linux. Use Linux. If you’re using Mac, switch to Linux. If you’re using Windows…just don’t. And switch to Linux.”’
So I guess I should probably switch to Linux.
The first question is, which distro? There are a lot. And no, I don’t want to go the easiest way and then move up, unless somebody gives me a really good reason. I like to jump in and learn the hard way. Somebody who isn’t into hacking himself but knows some people who are said that he’s heard Kali is good.
The second question is one that I can seem to turn up any answers to no matter how long I search the internet: Can I run Linux on my Mac and still switch back to Mac if I wanted to? Basically, could I run both on my computer at the same time (like you can run Windows on a Mac in Parallels Desktop), and still get full Linux functionality.
Yes, I’m doing my research outside of pestering people on the forums. Lots of it. Sometimes I just like to ask human beings who will understand my questions better than my search engine does.
