Well, Backtrack 5 is out, and in this version you have the option to download your preferred desktop manager: Gnome or Kde. In my case I prefer gnome because in my opinion, it offers more flexibility when configuring X window. I have not played around much with this version, but I noticed that Nessus is back (you need to register) but it is free, and you can register as many times you want. Also, it has “Wbar” dock bar, which could be easily configure under Accessories->WbarConf. Anyway, here’s how the gnome desktop looks, well sort of, with a few minor changes.
