I think there are more, easier to find, freely available 'hacking' tools made for linux. Although the same things could be made for windows if the 'hacker' could program. Both platforms support a wide variety of programming languages and every person has thier own preference to which is better. You will have to take blackknight's advice and try them for yourself.

hacking with windows is like running up to buckingham palace naked and with i'm an idiot painted on ya chest and thinking no 1 will notice you...
Maybe im dumb, but I don't understand this analogy. I don't see how doing anything from windows is more tracable then doing it from linux. Both OSes use the same protocols for internet communications. Is there something I don't know about windows?
