So, how does this compare to @Steve6375's Easy2Boot? Opinions? Advantages/disadvantages when compared to/against E2B? It looks like AIO Boot primarily uses GRUB2, Clover, and Syslinux, whereas E2B uses GRUB4DOS. I'm preferential to E2B right now but only because it has worked reliably for the most most when it comes to booting a variety of boot mediums/OSes. I use a 256GB USB stick with E2B on it. Maybe I will try AIO out on a smaller secondary stick as a test, but I probably wouldn't switch, since what I have "just works".

@Blackcrack: Yes, the ISO is extracted into the directory as its name.

Because Grub2 is a little faster than Grub4Dos. Furthermore, E2B uses the method of scanning existing files at boot time. AIO uses real files and menus when integrated through the tool. So maybe it's a little faster too.
Grub4Dos can not read non-contiguous files, while Grub2 can.
Grub2 supports UEFI mode, E2B also supports but it needs to switch to Grub2.
E2B does not support PXE, AIO does.
Because we do not need too much, AIO is lighter than E2B.
