Except that PHLAK stands for Professional Hackers Linux Assault Kit...
Their CD is intended more as a toolkit for security professionals. It's
heavy on tools like nmap, nessus, john, freeswan, dsniff, etc. It also
uses only IceWM and fluxbox for GUIs. Not that I have a problem with
either (I run fluxbox exclusively myself) but for the average
"linux-starved public" I think Knoppix with their default of KDE is a
much better choice.
