The new Athena OS is released for InfoSec Professionals, Bug Bounty Hunters, Passionate Learners and Spicy Hackers.
What it offers
Pentesting: Athena OS has access to the BlackArch repository, the largest repository of pentesting tools.
User Oriented: if Arch was built for power users, Athena OS is designed to reduce complexity and improve the user experience.
Light: Athena OS optimizes disk space consumption by retrieving the tools you need only when you use them. Tools you never use will not be stored and your disk space will only be used for what you really need.
Odds: Athena OS is based on Arch Linux, so it's configured to load the bare minimum for its purpose. No useless services, no useless modules consuming your resources.
Flexibility: due to the nature of Arch, Athena OS is flexible and can easily evolve to new user needs.
Athena OS, codenamed “Parthenos”, comes with many important fixes and new implementations, and comes with the new GNOME 43!
