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