UI and Apple

Postby npderi » Fri Mar 01, 2013 11:18 am

Before I begin, I just want to say that I love Bootit BM. Excellent software. Had to learn a bit about the proceedures first with some fails, but overall very awesome program.

I wouldnt have bothered using the software at all though, had I not been given an assured instruction from a trusted source (IT professional) to use it. I had searched for solution, but much of what I came across wasn't what I liked, made things tedious for many OSes, or was from acronis (junk). When I had come accross BootIt, without a moment's hesitation, I thought it was a scam.

So one of my requests stems partly from my first impression of seeing the "previews" or "screenshots" of the software and the website. I would have looked closer at this gem of a software long ago, but I couldn't get myself to trust the site, and moreso the software. Looking at the site made me think of something slapped together by someone trying to make a quick buck, and worse yet the screenshots with the "lightning" turned me off. I honnestly thought it was a scam. :o I am not saying this in a manner to belittle anyone, but since I like the software a lot, I thought I would share my impressions, and suggestions.

1. The UI: I know that it's supposed to be minimal and support all types of displays. However, if there is a possibility to give the UI a newer look, I think it wouldn't make it look better to the consumer too. I don't mean have more eye candy in the UI. Simply not have the software look like it's win 3.1 or the old norton desktop. A cleaner look?

2. Mac: I was also curious if there are plans to support using the software on a MAC system, and/or support MAC OS X.

You mentioned BootIT BM, but you're posting in the BootIt NG part of the forum. Have you been working with BootIt BM (BIBM), or with BootIt NG (BING)? I only used BIBM once (I'm a longtime BING user), but the BIBM UI looks a little more "modern", if you haven't seen that.

Also, I think that with BING, there were restrictions in terms of how large the program/code could be (BING could fit on, and boot from, a floppy disk), so that probably limited BING, which traded functionality for "eye candy".

Anyway if you ARE talking about BIBM, rather than BING, you might post your thoughts in the BIBM part of the forum?

Ahh sorry about that. I had wrongly thought that Next Gen meant, discussions on next version of BootIT. I will post this there.

Love the product in any case, I would personally be ok with paying x3 or x5 more for the extra features I mentioned.
