The Kali [Linux] is not a cup of tea for everyone and not well suited for personal computer hence I recommend only relevant people in my organization and other contacts to prefer it for management and monitoring of information security, network security and penetration testing. I also recommend the mobile developers of organization to use it for reverse engineering of APK files to learn advance development methodologies.
