Originally developed as part of Frozenbox (a community forum by the same creator of Parrot), the effort has grown to include a community of open source developers, professional security experts, advocates of digital rights, and Linux enthusiasts from all around the globe.
The project is headquartered in Palermo, Italy and governed by Parrot Security CIC, a community interest company registered in the UK.

#### Who is it designed for ####
The system is designed to be familiar for the security expert and easy to use for the new entry student, but it does not try to hide its internals as other general purpose distributions try to do.
Parrot can be used as a daily system, and it provides all the programs for the day to day tasks, including a dedicated edition of the system (Parrot HOME) that don't include security tools.

### Software Store ###
The system has its own applications repository including all the packages supported by Debian (more than 56,000 packages available over 4 different architectures), plus many other applications and tools Debian can't provide yet, all of them are accessible directly from the APT package manager.
Additionally, Parrot supports SNAP, a new package distribution system that provides easy access to many other programs that GNU/Linux distributions don't always ship in their software archives. Take a look at the snap programs list.

All this additional security comes with a cost: it is harder to adopt bad behaviors on Parrot. For instance it is not possible to log in as root with the whole desktop environment, or to start critical applications like browsers, media players or advanced document readers with unnecessary privileged permissions.
The user can still open root consoles, launch security tools with privileged permissions and use the system without limits. The only thing that changes is that all the critical user applications are now protected from very bad behaviors and common exploit techniques, or even 0days, and the damages caused by advanced exploits are very limited.
Additional and more aggressive sandboxing can be achieved with Firejail

I personally think guided partitioning for less experienced users is recommended, 40 GB or more are enough, unless your going to want to install alot more programs or keep larger file on your hard drive.
