I've been using Kali Linux as my main distro for Pentesting for about a year now, and I'm coming to the point where it annoys me more than it is useful. I can't update packages as the repos are stale, tools are outdated and work incorrectly, there is a lot of bloat from tools I will never use, its just a mess.
I decided that I need to switch to another Linux Distribution, such as Ubuntu, (or Arch ?), and set it up the way it suits me. To approach this structurally, I compiled a list of tools I need here.
Burp ( And Therefore Java including jdk)
Firefox with Proxy Switcher, a Passwordsafe, BuiltWith, ...
vim with my vimrc
some of my custom general purpose scripts
some of my custom hacking tools / scripts
Seclists / Some other Pwn Lists from Github and Wordlists
