Not to really encourage anybody but... there is a new release 2023.4! It could be downloaded from the front page of Distrowatch, on the "latest distros" list on the left-hand side.

from:


Code:
    OS Type: Linux
    Based on: Debian (Testing)
    Origin: Gibraltar
    Architecture: aarch64, Apple M1, armel, i686, x86_64
    Desktop: GNOME, KDE Plasma, Xfce
    Category: Data Rescue, Forensics, Live Medium, Raspberry Pi, Security
    Status: Active
    Popularity: 22 (366 hits per day) 

Kali Linux (formerly known as BackTrack) is a Debian-based distribution with a collection of security and forensics tools.
It features timely security updates, support for the ARM architecture, a choice of four popular desktop environments,
and seamless upgrades to newer versions.

The problem is there are three desktop environments listed above.

Why am I starting this thread? Because it grabs my curiosity this sub-forum seems to get more posts than that of Ubuntu, for example. Something is attractive here. Without stating the obvious.

That it supports Apple M1 architecture is a best real fat big plus for some people.
