Hello folks, this section is dedicated to the topics related to GNU/Linux and FOSS(Free and Open Source Software).
One line answer - Linux is awesome! As an OSINT practitioner, most of the things that you do would involve accessing information through browsers. GNU/Linux based operating systems gives you an edge over other operating systems such as Windows and Mac, in terms of efficiency, speed, reliability, privacy and security. And also GNU/Linux is open source, that means you can customize the operating system however you want, which gives you more control and modularity while conducting OSINT operations. We also have a dedicated GNU/Linux channel for educating you about tools, techniques, scripting and so on.
