And out of curiosity about the full description, I see Sourceforge has done the right thing and taken the download of of active service until they can investigate it further, I say good on them.

While I did like Anon's earlier inventions, this is disappointing. They just took Ubuntu and made a few modifications. Plus, I'm a bit confused as to how the OS would be updated, as that would require a centralized service for everyone to get updates.

In my opinion, Anonymous is cool. This OS however, is not. I would just download BackTrack if I wanted a bunch of pen testing tools. If your really into Linux and rolling a custom distro, I would just get Arch Linux (I got in on VirtualBox). If your a noob, get Ubuntu.

Did you miss the part where Anon said this distrib wasn't from them, is fake and likely a trojan?

No I didn't, and I would discourage use of this and other unpopular distros because of that.

My opinion still stands.

There's probably FBI surveillance software installed somewhere so they can monitor "new recruits". Other than that, I can see no reason why any "normal" person would want this. Besides, if it really was Anon's real OS, they wouldn't need to advertise for it. The people who know where to get it already have it. In other words:

IT'S A TRAP.

If what to learn how to protect a network just download the backtrack Linux distro.
"Anon-branded linux" It's probably just backtrack re-branded.

37,000 dumb asses confirmed. Even if it was from the actual Anon group, why the hell would you download it?

Agreed. So confusing.

"Pesky non-centralized leadership"? Is that anti-#OWS leet speak for "human nature" ? Cause lat time I checked, these kinds of antics happen regardless of your preferred style of government -- in our case, the media *ehem* is just bought-out enough that they are too scared to publish most outbursts.

You will not find sentient organizations without central leadership. This is a fact of nature, not just human nature. Even a hive-mind collective such as Bees, Ants, and Hornets require leadership.

Oh look! A paranoid delusional script kiddie! They're so cute in the spring time.
