Hello all im new to the forum but have been a long time fan of hak5, anyways today i had an idea.

what if i took apart a netbook, got a wifi pineapple, and an alfa card or similar awesome wifi card, and then put it all in one case, such as an old grid compass laptop or something, could something like this be done? and how much of a pain in the ass would it be?

Are you trying to home build another version of pineapple, using your laptop parts and a wifi card? Sorry I am trying to understand what you are trying to do.

no im trying to build a bundle a netbook, a wifi card, and the fon, into one case, im looking at the grid compass on ebay.

I like the idea, I think it would be possible to make one why not. But in terms of building time it could take a couple of days or weeks I guess.

yea i dont see too many issues with it, just lookin at some feedback, hmm well when i begin to have the funds i plan on doing this. the grid looks like a badass case for it but its hard to find on ebay, not too many of em.

The whole idea is pointless, just buy a netbook or any laptop, install Ubuntu or any other Linux distro. Swap out the wireless card with a cheap Atheros mini pci/e card. Install Karma or use karmetasploit.

whats with you people and ubuntu *shudders

ubuntu is a horrid distro, have you looked at thier community user base? its filled with "not very smart people"

use something like gentoo, fbsd or arch linux

Linux is Linux, only open source zealots and people that don't know enough give a shit. Ubuntu fits on one CD, its fast and easy to install and has the features of every "advanced user" Linux if you want them. They don't remove the possibility to compile software from source, rebuild your Kernel and customize every aspect of the OS if you want. Its Linux for the real world, for people that have better things to do, or just don't give a fuck to get every ounce of performance out of the hardware i.e. Gentoo users. You can still do that if you want but you don't need too.

I went through a phase of trying different Linux distributions in the 90's and early 2000's and still see whats about today, but it really does not matter what you use. If you want security, Linux is not the best pick, but you can always enable SELinux features or use Bastille.

If we are going to tar an entire community with the same brush, we could call all Windows users retards, but guess what, most hardware designers, coders, mathematicians, physicist and so on use it.

If we are going to talk about the BSD's, well we are talking about a different OS, we may as well be talking about QNX, Open Solaris or any other number of OS, which all have there merits, but in my opinion don't make a great Laptop OS.

Agree, much as I love FreeBSD, its terrible on laptops (or as a desktop). Gentoo is a circle jerk, Linux has yet to make a desktop OS that is as good as Windows 7.

What Linux is missing as a desktop OS is native software. I dislike Open Office but its passable for the task, but the market is not big enough or has a call for things like NI multisim for doing multilayer circuit designs and simulation (you can do design), or really a massive area of specialist applications. The same could be said for OSX but that's on its own hardware (even know its technically the same) and people don't expect to be able to do the same tasks or software. WIne is okay but it does not work with everything and is not ideal for a lot of things.

In all honesty, Linux will never be a good desktop OS, it will always be playing catchup to Windows or OSX. However, on servers and devices it will be king. I'll own a TV and a fridge that runs Linux long before I use it as a main desktop OS.

You can't insult Ubuntu for having a "not very smart" community and then suggest Gentoo or Arch. :lol:

Totally agree. I've used Ubuntu before and kinda liked it. I now am a big fan of BT.

See BT is the only distribution I don't like, but I think an OS should be a base that is there to allow the user to builds his/her tool list, from source, via a package manager or any other means, but still have a basic/general software list that allows you to use it out the box.

My main issue with BT is its like handing a loaded gun to a 5 year old, sure it might be entertaining at first but at some point its going to get messy. Don't get me wrong the hand gun should still exist, its just that you should have to at least put it together yourself.
