Curious about the major differences between Kali Linux and SecurityOnion. Do you think it would be easy or useful to replicate what has been done with SecurityOnion on Kali? Why is there such a dichotomy between security breakers and security defenders... and is this divergence visible through these two primary (and heavily used) distributions? Ultimately, should there be a unified "infosec linux distro", are there already better alternatives to the two, and what is the future of guest VMs, booting from USB/SD/microSD/DVD/PXE, and integration with modern platforms (e.g., ARM-based, Android, SteamOS, ChromeOS, iOS, et al)?
Similarly, what are the major distros for IT/Ops-based infrastructure Linuxes? Ran across Zentyal before, but are there others (also see my last question below on virtual infrastructures), can they (or should they) be replicated on Kali/SecurityOnion, and what's the future of these distros as well?
Lastly, what about other distros that have critical importance to the infosec community, but that aren't "production-ready" because they are meant to be used only in labs -- e.g., Metasploitable, OWASPBWA, SamuraiSTFU, etc? Should this functionality be merged into a single package, such as an easily-installable OpenStack bundle? What is the future of Xen, XenServer, KVM, and ESXi in the face of OpenStack? Rackspace is mostly OpenStack, Microsoft mostly Azure-specific kernel (Server 2012), Amazon AWS-specific Xen kernel, VMware obviously ESXi/vCloud, and others are doing a mix of KVM (for Linux guests) and XenServer (for Windows guests) -- in light of these options, what is a good model for virtual infrastructures?
