Boot Land Newsletter

August 31, 2008Weekly news from the land of Boot disks.

Introduction

This week were posted several more app scripts to add up to the already quite numerous collection of available app scripts for wb projects. I wonder what would happen if someone decided to grab them all together and build their boot disk with all of them included inside?

How long would it take to build? Could the build process be speeded up? How big would this get?

These are all questions worth making across the month of September and if you're interested in trying this crazy mash up of all the available app scripts available a project then don't miss out the next week as WinBuilder comes closer to be released as stable version.

Here's a quick summary of what has been talked on boot land this week.
