    One says Ubuntu one says Slax. But Distrowatch says Ubuntu. I guess they didn't change their /etc/lsb-version or whatever folder they're using for their distro ID. This is not usual just sloppy. It doesn't really matter to the running of backtrack, and, btw, it's still pre-final so it's not all polished yet.

    Edit: Pre-Final June 21, 2009 and no final yet? Hmmm.
