Great For Quick Bootable ISOs

about Rufus · · Helpful Not helpful 2 Helpful

I haven't used it enough to really write a review on it but the couple of times I used Rufus it was super fast and super easy. The only thing I could possibly gripe about is the lack of formatting to EXT3 or EXT4, but most modern Linux distros have no trouble reading FAT32.

Good software, horrible dev

about Rufus · · Helpful Not helpful -2 Helpful

As the title says. The dev "Akeo" will immediately go on attack if you say anything negative about the software, rather than trying to figure out what the issue is, or dispel any misinformation.

Doesn't matter how good the software is, if you're an asshole, it makes the software shit. End of story.

0/10 would not recommend.

Cons: hundreds of Pendrives

Cons:

Hundreds of Pendrives; 1 per every distro you plan to install. I prefer Serva net install approach instead.
