The beta free and a pro pre-purchase (basically a full version beta for the advantures people) could be out in a month I guess. Kinda collected a bigger todo while considering earlier release, still not ready.

You forgot to specify that you are talking of a latin month  ;), you should listen more to your (mute :w00t:) PR, and give not any forecast, least we'll have another bunch of posts of frenzied peeps wanting an update to the delivery date (or a preview, or more details, etc.).  :ph34r:

 

Just for the record, I approve of your NOT choosing a "subscription model" :yes:.

What about payment options, will you accept cash orders or paysafe cards for people without credit cards & paypal?

As you know software like this is very popular in eastern Europe & Russia, where they don't hand out ccs like candy.

 

I generally have no problem with going commercial, even better if it means that it will go above and beyond nlite & hfslip!

you are doing a big mistake with your complex registration system ....
it will be cracked as fastly as it happened to win8 8.1 despite the very complex system M$ created for registration
first of all : because the major thief in windows ' world is windows . do you still hear the winamp word or see it decoding mp3 ?
second of all because win9 will be free like apple os or linux

What matters, sixcentgeorge, is that those that know the amount of work involved and appreciate the years of effort put into these projects will have an easy and official method to show their support and encourage the creation of great software.

@ sixcentgeorge

 

Also win9 will definitely NOT be free.

 

Plus apple os is very arguable NOT free either. You pay 3x plus or more money for a apple system.

 

hmmm http://store.apple.c...06Z/A/os-x-lion

 

Personally with attitudes like your is why us small developers have to start charging at all. You wan't all the work and effort we put out for free.

 

Because my software is primarily free I frequently can't even afford things like internet or domain registration fees.

 

Next you'll want free gas and use the excuse that lots of people fill up thier tanks and just drive off without paying so why can't i?

 

I on many occasion have put in way over 60 hours a week into WPI and have in the last ten years received less than a months pay at minimum wage in unsolicited donations.

 

I would definitely after seeing your ungrateful crappy post think about not even having a free version at all....

jaclaz, yeah, I should take the Blizzard route and say "when it's done".

 

petrus, among credit card and paypal, depending which country you are in, it supports extra payment methods like Check/Money Order, bank transfer, Giropay and so on. I picked a more expensive option at the seller, so it covers more ground.

 

sixcentgeorge, all software gets cracked, people who do not want to support the developer will steal it regardless of the licensing options.

I really do not see how a single license option is complicated. Feel free to contact me over PM so we can discuss it in more detail as to how you would simplify it.
And second point, just because Windows (or any other subject) is free, doesn't mean that a tool modifying that subject at your will, automated by my work, gets to be free as well.

You can use the same logic on a free picture, should Photoshop be free as well (of course there are free alternatives, not talking about that, but that Adobe is still alive and charging for Photoshop).

Nuhi,
 
in some ways - this robot is sad... (Pls give some guys like Kelsenellenelvian a free License)
Their long time extra support for nlite & prebuilding - helps in the past to create this big community. They deserve it ;)
 
Another point that makes me sad,
you did for a long time a good job, and i totally agree that you deserve some money for your new tool too...
 
- but, i don´t like the way, you like to did it ! - There are still many people in this world, who have slow & old computers, and don´t have the money to buy new Software... (this are the people who really needs all functions)
 
I wish you´ve done it, in another way... - as example: Kickstartercampain with 100.000$ Target and 3 to 5 years of support...
or 500.000$ for Writing the code, and release it as Opensource... - by a way like this, you got your donation, and the project can´t die as long as there is a community... Maybe you can sell the the old nlite code to be Opensource by this way ?
 
- in my opinion, a Kickstartercampin like that would be the best and most fair way to do it... - although if you decide, to do something else in your live, or if you die (Winter is coming for all of us...) - the project would be still alive than !
 
Offtopic:
For me, at all - its pointless, cause i never will use windows 7,8 - their "mousemovementbinded" energysavingmode - kills me and my CAD programs - so i still working with xp and its utilization saving mode (CPU Idle Throttling still works good) - maybe i get a cheap Server2003 Winversion from somewhere, until ReactOS came out...
Even AMD decide last year to drop the driversupport for my HD4770, - they did this to me 2 times before, and every time i bought new amd crap, they promised that i am prepared for the future - but they don´t say that future ends in their mind every 2 years !
I don´t play that game anymore, and completly stop buying things at all - cause its everywhere the same - new crap for the garbage and killing this tiny planet with tons of plastic...
 
Think about that R2-D2´s Batterie was completly unrepairable after 2 years existenz - he will never be able to bring Leia´s message to Obiwan ! Thats not the world i wanna live in ! Life of nonliving things must be longer than life of living things...
 
 
P.S. Cause i am forget Password and E-Mail on my R2D2 Account - R4D3 is my next life... (but same soil)
P.P.S my english is so bad, the entire text is red underlined here :D

i agree with every body that we all have to pay our bills , the crisis is very hard with little chicken like us : i also work in the pc world : i build watercooled computers and dvdrom linux live servers for games .
what i mean is that nuhi should be already paid , even few bucks , by this forum that has some adverts and use its products to make people come here .  some says i do not have the spirit of a sharer but is the forum and its "highest" are so exemplary ?
 
for the rest , you link to os 10.7  Kelsenellenelvian , first line shows a link to 10.9 that is free to download for apple customers , 8.1 did it a bit like that with w8 ...
 
i do not say that the software should be free , but even in the game world : with marvel or dc online , or dota ,tf2 from valve ....they do more money with the adds in forum or by selling some plus in game than selling it . of course with the software nuhi is making that apply changes once before install it is not that easy to charge : after when user wants more
that is the market and os are showing the same trend . if i were you i would set up a forum and let people gives you some money , then you can also offer to create some dvdrom to install for specific hardware with drivers and updates of them to earn more money .  [good luck finding a job]
 
by the way , i am sure next windows will come with such a tool as xplite , look at the removal tool of windows that is getting more and more functions and remove possibilities .

I will likely buy the Pro version when it becomes available.

 

I do know, however, that when I buy a Pro version of software, I expect it to have tons of features. With the Pro version of this tool, I will expect to be able to shrink Windows to its utter bare bones (and still be able to run normal things (for me, those are: Internet & networking via Ethernet cable and Wireless G/N <including shared home network [not HomeGroup]>, Nvidia streaming, and VPN connectivity), DX11 gaming, MS Office, and Adobe CC <all programs>). If I can do those things, I don't need anything else bloating up my OS.

 

One thing about paying for software is that your $$$ gives you the absolute right to complain if you didn't get what you wanted. Freeware developers don't (necessarily) have to listen to the complaints or suggestions of their users. Paid software developers do, if they want to avoid a gazillion refund requests and the eventual death of their software.

 

I only mention this because I think people will expect *more* out of it if they have to pay for it.

 

Nuhi, I'm really curious what this super-special feature is for the Pro version? I can't wait...!

 

I have a suggestion how to set up the software for "newbies" or people who don't know what they're doing, lol... Have the software start in "safe" mode, where people can use it to remove a very limited set of things, speed up windows a bit, without breaking Windows... If a user wants the more advanced features, they have to tick a checkbox in the options (after reading a stiff warning about the possibility of rendering Windows unusable).

 

Anyway, I can't wait! I'm dying to strip Windows 7 x64 and 8.1 x64 down as much as possible. I like a neat, tidy OS with a small footprint and as few running processes as possible...
