HackShark Linux is different from other generic linux distributions. Unlike all, it doesn't contain any so called office package, audio/video codecs and/or graphics manipulation program. We had to remove those packages to maintain the volume of the ISO image. However, there is always options to install any linux based application, to be more precisely, any RPM based application. Like all major linux operating systems, you can compile your own source codes here. HackShark Linux is enriched with crime investigation and analysis specific applications. If you think any package is missing, you can always download and install it from the online repository. As well, if you think any application is unnecessary, just remove it. You can even update any packages including the kernel itself to the higher available version. Featured Applications
