No! Absolutely Not!

It is much alive, since SP1 was released a long time ago, vLite was continuously debugged and now we have a stable version.....no bugs!
Now that SP2 RC has been released you will take back your post, vLite will be up and kicking like never before. Besides I think that the developer is working on a version for Windows 7.....

I sure hope the vLite is alive and well.

Because the Vista SP2 Release Candidate was just published by Microsoft.
Would be really nice to have vLite to do the shirinking Vista SP2. :thumbup

It's sad that we have no open source vLite or something alternative,
the "Genuine" Windows is really ugly!

We DO NOT need dozens of hacked up dangerous versions out there.

They are to powerfull and way to customized to let the general public\hackers have access to it.

Think of this - you get the "Latest and Greatest" vLite and after vLiting your system you install it, then all of a sudden your system goes online and starts routing porn, viruses and spam emails...

If we only had some kind of statement from the author of vLite, like for example: "New version with the support of Windows 7 is in the works..." or something like that, my life would become much brighter :-(

"On pause - human.dll" - well, yes! and working too (better'n a lot of us are doing)!

I think an operative phrase would be "wait until I have time and inclination, so don't pester me".

Happy for ya, Nuhi!

Me says Hello to you all! :hello:
Looking forward to a new "SP2" vLite version, and trusting nuhi to give me a few days to update the swedish lang. file!
I also would like to explore a "7Lite" Edition whenever that day will come! :yes:

Please, dont give fake hope.

nuhi doesn't have time, he said so (a long time...). :whistle:

is not going to open the source code, he said that too (a long time too...). :hello:

either way, don't scare people or tell, how many opensource proyects are that dangerous?

XPize is full of viruses, spyware, tojans, etc because now the source is open?

OMG :angry:

C'mon! Rationale behind Kel's post (with explanation), is because if any other "bad" person got hold of the source, they might modify it (as was explained) and distribute it under the pretense that the original author wrote it, and BAM! Instant virii/trojans and who would be blamed?

Bear in mind, that we have no "controlled" environment (except for our own self-control) like SourceForge has (read the GNU/GPL stuff). Someone writes, we test (on separate machine or VM), report back, suggest changes, and volunteer to directly participate (with author's consent and direct co-operative off-line sharing and not willy-nilly). Many of these projects are written in languages that others are not familiar with and may very well be complex.

Again, in many cases (these included) it would be downright dangerous to "open source" it. No GNU/GPL provided, period!

It is now (for these projects) simply a waiting game, so we wait...

You don't need source to release a virus/spyware loaded version of nLite/vLite. And there is already loads of virus loaded OS ISOs created with nLite/vLite, releasing it's source wouldn't make any difference, no one would bother with it as there are simpler and more effective ways to distribute malware.

I really dread a future without Vlite and Nlite. Using "lightened" XP and Vista is a daily part of my professional and personal life. I can not imagine using Vista SP2 or Windows 7 without making it lighter using vlite first. :(

Too many good projects died when the author lost interest, threatened by some big company or just daily life intervened. I hope Vlite/Nlite follow a different way.

Best wishes to Nuhi... Levent

I do like vLite a lot but with Windows 7, we might be able to live without it.

You are able to remove certain components after installing (like ie8, movie maker, etc) - just be content with that!

maybe if nuhi found another developer who would be willing to continue his project, as an associate or sth? so the development process would be under nuhi's supervision? just my .02

NOT AGREE!

We not really need open source, but we need a timely update!
I think only open source can solve the problem,
but this is just dreaming, as nuhi does not open it and i can't coding it...

Something like this needs to be in a VERY controlled enviroment.

Too many people could easily make nefarious versions and sucker the common user without their know.

Leave a port open here....
Dial a open address...
Poof PC and data plus connection GONE.

It's already being done with one of the most infamous WAREZed copies of XP and Vista out there. I am barred from mentioning the name here (By common sense and forum rules)

This copy I mentioned actually sends the maker data and not only that he gets paid for the use of your pc... Ads, toolbars and soforth.

fully agree with Kel,

remember guys, nuhi worked solidly on nlite then vlite basically without a break

now he has a real job.



if everyone donated, then maybe he could just sit at home, churning out new versions without needing to work :P

ms seem to be edging towards more component removal, which could negate the need for a 'xlite' program
