ricktendo, those are some valid arguments. To me wLite sounds bad when spoken outloud and the domain is not available.

xLite is taken to the bone.

 

jaclaz, lol on the icon (Monsters Inc?).

 

petrus, kinda too literal. I would not lock name to a version, when possible.

Update 2? I do not know more about the rumors than you guys do.

 

Bornung, esd conversion can be done with DISM, so for now you can simply run a script after. I would like to automate that, currently it's not.

By ready you mean final version? It depends on the beta feedback, beta should be out in 2-3 weeks tops.

 

MrJinje, not sure if coaster thing was intended to be an insult, or just a bold joke. Either way, be sure to report if anything gets broken.

 

Tripredacus, lol.

 

GF6, UI is different. Now after the fact I could describe it as a combination of vLite and Windows Explorer.

OK.  I hope you are not forced to change the UI completely through either the pre-beta release phase or during the beta feedback stage.  The UI in nLite works for me.

nuhi, I do also like nLiteNEXT

I think that was originally Ricktendo's suggestion.

 

It avoids being tied to a particular Windows version, rolls off the tongue nicely, and implies the future as well.

 

2 to 3 weeks tops, eh, until we see a beta version? I can't wait, whatever you decide to call it!

latin from europe or south-america , if i am right they are called latinOS ;']

i do not ask for your tool , but if you could announce some of your results with pics , that would help to wait .

 

beside that , i think you should make a beta out because much young people are still in holidays ; we all know that they love to do tests and sometimes are able to get interesting bugs

Lets also move away from the "Lite" necessity in the filename, maybe will lead to a better name... Get the ball rolling with

nTool

Can we re-use "existing names"? :unsure:

I would rather prefer "The Nameless Tool by Nuhi", abbreviated into "TNT" (by Nuhi)....

mprove as in improving Windows and as in proving WinSXS can be cleaned, while continuing the tradition of (name forming of) nlite (and improving it). And is a synonym related word.

I'm pretty sure people will use it regardless the name.   Seriously, I used the first two versions (nlite and vlite) even though you spelled 'light' wrong both times.   :angel

 

Maybe you could call it

 

Huge Windows Disk Phixer or HWDP for short, probably be pretty popular with the euro crowd.

Sure, all new OS's starting from Windows NT 3.1 in July 1993 ..... ;) (though at the time you didn't actually *need*/*want* to make them "lite", the game was to add to them things you needed).

 

A few years later I had a NT 4.0 with only the help/doc files deleted and slightly optimized on a ZIP 100 disk :whistle:

ricktendo, nTool looks nice, but it is (probably) widely used. And unprecise, the "tool" part. But it sure looks nice and clean. While nLiteX looks a little messy.

 

MrJinje, dencorsosixcentgeorge, :)

 

gendouhydeist, ooo...we have a winner, and it was so obvious. NTLite... that's it, we're done, thank you for participating. Second favorite is nLiteX.

Why do I like NTLite. First it's similar to nLite, then it's not (too obviously) taken, and NT is self-explanatory, which covers any today's Windows version, as X would do.

What's the release window now with the name out of the way? A matter of weeks or months?

Until it's done and perfect like Duke Nukem Forever!

 

 

And on a side-note, there won't be a big 8.1 Update 2, i say thank god, nothing to delay nlite further.

LeakHunter, in one of my previous posts in this topic I said 2-3 weeks (that was said on 3rd of August).

I am sorry if I leaded you on to wait, it wasn't my intention, but the completion of the first public version is near, of course.

I may have been off in my calculations for a week, we'll see.

 

petrus, I am aware that the development shouldn't be stretched for too long. Imagine how I felt more than a year ago when it started, and on each bigger obstacle question the entire idea. But of course, I love this, and it will show in the tool.

Good about Update 2, indeed.

 

If you guys knew what details are delaying it, you would slap me. But, I feel that the summary of those details are the key.

And since I see a little bit more hype than I would like, it bears repeating; don't expect too much from the first version, nLite was developed for years.

 

These days starting to work on a website,that means the critical todo list has finally shrinked.
