Currently in the process of building a new pc. I am considering the choice of separating my main pc, from my “hacking pc”. Would it be pointless? The main difference between the pc’s would be that the main pc is a lot higher in performance. I would also be using Windows 10 for the main, but for the “hacking pc I would just the linux distro tails. So should I seperate the two, or just use the one pc? Any insight would, help. If my question is stupif or does not make sense I am sorry. Otherwise thanks.

You can enable WSL in your Win10 and have Kali installed. With virtualization, there’s really no need for separate physical systems anymore.

Why use tails? Are you familiar with it? Tails is definitely not designed to be a hacking tool like kali Linux. It blocks all non-secure connections – you’re probably not going to get very far hacking-wise. You should just shoot for kali Linux and maybe try to tweak it so that you leave less of a digital footprint, although that’s probably gonna impede on your ability to “hack”.

Kali Linux is nice or Parrot OS

Leverage the [whonix gateway](https://www.whonix.org/) (virtualized) for routing all traffic from your favorite security distro (virtualized).

U got a cool idea! I did the same thing but I got 3 pcs now, my “main” pc, ig u can call it, is my Ubuntu machine, I also use it for security tasks, I gave up on all the fancy pentest distros, I just use Ubuntu cause I’m a student as well and its a great desktop, the tools I need I can install from a terminal, I don’t need 100 tools I can’t even understand them, I use tools slowly, I understand it and why its used, how can I automate this tool with a python or bash script? Shit like that.
Honestly a hacking machine can be any pc with python installed if ur skilled enough.
But I find it best to separate my machines, like ok if I build a server and a client, and I really want to test them, it just doesn’t feel right if I was running them both on one rig, I feel like if you want to truly learn network pentesting, u need multiple machines. That way I can test running remote commands and networking protocols with python and shit.
