Why would you think so?
It’s already easy to run Kali in a chroot.
MS is doing wrapping, mapping Linux calls to Windows DLL’s. Great job, but nothing that adds to arm architecture

Not helpful to you, but it exposes a new generation of users to Linux. That taste of freedom might grow into a hunger down the line.

One thing i can assure. Windows 10, with all the latest updates, is way more friendly to all. A few years ago it took me ages to flash my N9 when now is faster

Is Kali any good? (A genuine question, I have never tried it.) Because if not, then a cynic might have said that there is no better way to turn potential new users off Linux than by introducing them to a bad one. (I can testify, my migration to Linux was delayed by at least ten years by trying to get in by, in the given order, Mandrake, Slackware and SuSE.)

Given that SUSE and Ubuntu are already there as options, Kali is a good alternative if you dislike those two aforesaid distros. My exposure to Kali is minimal, but it's a great tool for certain kinds of uses within some corporate structures (read: white hat) and that's (to me) kind of awesome.

It's another tool within an organization that is not linked to any inherited problems or oversights that MS Windows may never test or show up as a concern.

Nice list of distros btw. We're quite similar.

It's not that I dislike them. They are great distros for a seasoned user. Just not so much for a novice like I was then. I have everything to thank for to Ubuntu for finally getting me to the other side. Now I would not touch it with a barge pole.

I at least am kind-of-polydrug-user, of the worst kind.

On my non-mobile platforms I use almost daily at least Debian, Fedora, Gentoo, Ubuntu and on top of those 2 different strains of inhouse Linux, the first one a traditional LFS variant and the other a Koji-built own variant.

Now when I think about it, Arch is maybe the only major distro that I have not used.
