I never thought that I could find my perfect distro in a well-known pentesting distro. I've selected the home edition and it's fantastic; you don't get all those network or pentesting tools in this edition. You have a beautiful MATE desktop setup out-of-the-box and not just that, it has an excellent software collection, incluiding a good selection of privacy (and anonymous surfing) software. I'm a programmer and didn't have to download anything else, it has Atom, Geany that fit my needs. It could be overwhelming for newcomers, so I could not recommend it because a lot of settings and its debian testing base.
Finally, if you're looking for a rolling release distro + out-of-the-box software and desktop + debian legacy and privacy software there, no look further. Keep up the great work Parrot team!
best distro ever!!!! its so easily transformed from a home edition to a pen test edition by adding the tools you only need, and even if you are not into that world, the home version is one of the best versions for programmers, i find it so nicely to use, and it should be great for ppl who are just starting with programming, as you can directly from the desktop make a file for whatever language you are trying to learn/work in to :) really nice job!
