  1. The Good
    * Ability to create automated Windows installation disks that install Vista/XP, third party software, and other goodies such as drivers.
    * Ability to create automated software installation disks.
    * Ability to create an automated install list.
    * You can easily reuse software installation “packages” for multiple CDs.

    The Bad
    * Cumbersome implementation of a great idea (“macro-recording”).
    * You must copy the Windows disk contents to your computer prior to making the CD.
    * You *must* enter company information/name when creating a Windows installation CD.
    * You *must* enter Windows product key when creating a Windows installation CD.
    * You must close antivirus/firewall and UAC (UAC only if you are in Vista) when ‘recording’ a software install.
    * Does not verify if Windows product key is correct (typos can occur).
    * Time zone list is very disorganized.
    * No Windows 7 support in v6.7.

  2. @Ashraf: About the product key verification, it’s somewhat expected that it doesn’t exist. To actually implement the feature, there would need to be either a system call that verifies the key, or if someone cracked the Windows activation system and figured out the formula for product keys. Of course, as to the best of my knowledge, the first option doesn’t exist, and the second one would be illegal as it would be used by many as a keygen. So in conclusion, the lack of product key verification isn’t something they really can implement, so it doesn’t really consists a “bad” and shouldn’t be counted against them.

    I know; I understand =). However, see this is where the good developers outshine the not-so-good developers: thinking outside the box =). They could simply add in a “Enter Product Key Again” box like you have to enter a password twice when registering for something to make sure the user does not include typos while entering the key.
