Very nice. It worked straight out the box very good.

CAINE is best installed on a hard drive (500GB+) on a computer with an Intel processor with at least 8 threads running above 3GHz with at least 16 Gigabytes memory for best performance. The Bulk Extractor application benefits greatly as it is multi-threaded and can actually use up to 24 threads to increase speed, but I/O will then be a bottleneck. The single threaded applications can be run concurrently to speed up case processing. I also use a second internal hard drive (5TB) for case files as todays computers come with large drives and images must be made of them for proper forensics practice. It has built in write protection so you can use an SATA/IDE to USB adapter to image a hard drive, but can still use a hardware write protector if desired (they look good to non tech people).
CAINE can be cloned using Clonezilla for backup and imaging to another computer (my laptop for field use). The destination drive should be the same capacity or larger than the source drive. Gparted can stretch the partition if necessary.
Any forensics system including CAINE requires advanced knowledge of how computers work in order to use them to maximum potential. This must be followed up by hundreds of hours of self learning and hands on practice to effectively use all of the features available in CAINE.
CAINE is derived from Ubuntu and all of the Ubuntu repositories and updates can be used.
In conclusion, this is the best Linux forensics tool of any distro; it deserves high end hardware to work to it's full potential.

What more can I say?

IT IS VERY USER FRIENDLY
THE BEST FORENSIC DISTRO
IF IT COULD USE SOME OTHER LIGHTWEIGHT DESKTOP FOR HIGHER SPEED
