any distro is fine but prefebly one dealing with pentesting.

Can you remove those tools? If not, then there is really not that many distros that are not cluttered with unused tools lol
Although that is my opinion since im inexperienced in this topic :)

I was thinking about Backtrack or kali linux. They are the best for pentesting.

Backtracklinux

Kali linux
