Also one of the great features on Kali Linux, is that it now able to Bootstrap a Kali Installation/ISO directly from its repositories. This means that you can easily customize and build your own build of Kali, as well as be able to perform enterprise network installs using a local or a remote repository.

Kali Linux has also an active community willing to help users, do bug reports, and suggest tools.
With more than 300 free penetration testing tools and counting, Open Source, GPG signed packages and repos, wireless device support, and multi-language capability, surely this penetration testing distribution is a force to reckon with.
