Hello, I am a university student and wish to advance my skills in the cybersecurity field. When you ask communities, they either suggest using Parrot OS or Kali Linux. Which one should I pick?

For penetration testing purposes, your methodology is more important than the OS you utilize. Both distributions include the most used pentest tools. If you intend to use a tool which was not included in the distro you can easily install it. Our suggestion would be you using both and picking the one you are more comfortable with in the end.
