Most free tools used for computer forensics run on UN*X and most forensics distributions are based on Linux. At first they were based on Knoppix and later they started to use Ubuntu as a base. In the change we missed the ability to load the OS to ram. Now you need to hack it a bit to boot to ram, but I’ll talk about this some other day…
The fact is that sometimes I miss having a persistent UN*X installation.
I’ve always loved BSD flavor, partly because I’ve had good experiences with it. In 2004 we had to do video and multichannel audio transmission Montreal – Barcelona in the context of Artfutura 2004. Need to do firewall and traffic prioritization minimizing lag and without wasting the precious 100Mbps connection we got? OpenBSD + PF did the trick.
And I’ve had a long relationship with Sun operating systems since my college years, first with SUN OS and later with Solaris (you may not believe me, but once I was shutting down a SUN OS 4.1.X SPARCstation with «shutdown –g 0» and I got a message like «does it have to be now?» before the screen got black. It was an Easter Egg, I guess…)
