The upcoming new tool for Win 7/8/+ : My suggested name: nLiteX

139 posts in this topic

Ponch, nLite NG is ok, not sold on it just yet.

 

jaclaz, lol, keep them coming.

nLite 2, yeah almost there, as commented above it indicates XP support as v2 should represent extra features on top of v1.

Also imagine a changelog: nLite 2 v1.0.1 changes. Looks cluttered to me.

Unless I tie version number to the name. For example nLite 2 for v2+, then nLite 3... hm, need to think about that, because of the first notion. People then would wonder if v2 didn't have what v1 had, does v3 have what v2 had.

 

ricktendo, :)

nLite NES(T), NEXT, not bad, little on the long side.

 

GrofLuigi, Tripredacus, :)

 

hessam, very interesting idea. Regardless of the name you just increased my future todo list, pointing to the old nLite website after selecting XP source.

Regarding the name, you can't really change tool's name just because a license was changed. There needs to be a unique identifiable tool's name.

Imagine someone searches for nLite Pro, and all he finds is nLite Free. Then he needs to research further to learn that it can be upgraded and it switches the name. While having one tool, which has both licenses transparently, is much cleaner, at least from my perspective.

Then another option could be to rename the old nLite to nLite XP or something like that, and make the new one just nLite.

Hm... but as a user who did not see that news, I would be confused, and never saw something like it before.

wLite, yeah it is ok, like continuation from nLite - vLite - wLite. But still nLiteX is better to me, why... because name nLite is known and it sounds so nice Enlight X(put windows version here) :)

 

petrus, name nLite is known amongst many administrators, and they are those who advise their bosses on what productivity tools to buy for the company.

And basically it is (gonna be) very similar to nLite, just for newer Windows with different internals, so why not name it similarly, regardless what it was.

(Windows) Lite is used to describe trimmed Windows from 98Lite days as far as I know, and I hear/read the general notion "this software is lighter" on a weekly basis, indicating smaller size or less functionality, among other things.

Even if I do not focus on the lite aspect of it, we still have the en-light word. It illuminates various Windows options, making the whole process lite as a feather. ;)

 

Ultimist, were you just protecting your nLiteX idea? Thanks for the support, two of us seem to be the only ones to like it, hehe.

I vote for wLite then... to have name continuity, nLite was for XP, vLite for Vista and wLite is up and above, up and atom!

 

Or even have cheaper, separate fine tuned releases, 7Lite for Windows 7, 8Lite for Windows 8/8.1...

Whatever is chosen, verify it doesn't already exist. wLite.exe is a thing already, some webcam software.

dencorso, jaclaz, :) neeext.

 

petrus, yeah wLite is not bad, seems like it is now down to nLiteX and wLite.

 

Tripredacus, yes, good point.

Well, you have to consider also the sound it makes when read aloud by an English speaker.

nliteX may sound too similar to "in latex" :ph34r:

doubleulite could be better as it might sound more like "double your light" ;)

What about "nLite789"?

 

And then only with the release of Windows 10 in half a decade you go with nLiteX (X stands for 10 in Roman numerals).

jaclaz, lol, too good, cracked me up. Windows in latex...aaand there is the icon.

 

petrus, yeah, if there was a reason to split them, like licensing options, that would be one way. For now X covers all, which is fine to me.

 

boooggy, :), yeah we'll miss it, I got used to calling it windee and cookie.

I like wLite as well, next letter in the alphabet after "v" (for vLite) and after this you have "x" (for xLite) if needed for future versions 10+

 

I dont think you should go back to reusing nLite, I always thought of nLite as a tool for Windows 5.x

Ok.

Let's wlite be.

Here is a suitable icon draft.

Can we have the tool, now? :unsure:

Not nLite7 or nLite8, i mean to actually have all three numbers in the name:

 

nLite789.exe

 

It's at-least clear what you get if nothing else, nLite for Windows 7, 8 & 9.

Hey  ;)

 

Will your new tool be able to compress / change the *.wim file (after editing) to a *.esd file.

 

Really looking forward to test your new tool. Will it be ready to chrismas? Or are we closer to the summer 2015.

 

By the way, will gladly pay for your software, don't even have to think twice about it.

 

Cheers  :thumbup

Let's be real and drop all this 'lite' nonsense.  Just call it what it is.

No. If at all, early Aug MS may actually release Windows 8.1 Update 1 SR1, but that's still far from certain.

I vote for Wlite and for 9lite. If you want keep n, than my suggestion is WinLite. Plus or Pro should tag only the paid edition.

nuhi, a question.

 

Will you keep the UI as it is or change it to be more modern? Personally, I love the classic look that nLite has.

You cannot use Modern interface to do what this tool does, plus in order for it to be compatible with win7 it has to be a common app

In theory Nuhi could compile the entire thing as a DLL and p/invoke a front-end using Metro.  Not saying he should, just that it's possible.   Who else wants a full-screen version that runs in the background at a swipe.
