    Can I use KALI Linux as UBUNTU?

    These are my daily software needs (not much as you will read): - LibreOffice writer - Photofiltre - a PDF viewer - Mozilla Firefox - and a software to watch video or audio files. i'm normally keen eyed but don't see pen-testing in there. Computer Science is a fairly broad title, probably...
