Title says it all really :confused1:

mihi started and then seemingly abandoned (what i think is) a cool project to use a tiny file or set of files to run a PE system with explorer shell from a standard vista DVD in under 500kb!

Since it has been abandoned, I have coded my own much improved version which I will release in a couple of days, however I would like some suggestions for a new name - i dislike the original :cheers:

see his topic at http://www.boot-land...?showtopic=3806
or his winbuilder page at http://rescup.winbuilder.net/
or his website at http://rescup.wordpr...ategory/vision/
(his site gives the reasons why this project is a good idea :cheers:)

Slap on the name contest.

you forgot to mention

What is LiVista Rescup?
LiVista Rescup is a program that you can store on a USB pen drive or floppy disk and run from within the Vista Setup. It will automagically load a nice environment (with taskbar, explorer etc.) you can use as a rescue system.



Suggestion:
Pista Explore

Being a cool project based on Vista, (though a contraddiction in terms :cheers:) why not COOL VIS?

You can also make use of the rhyme with Elvis :confused1: and pretend that it comes from the Latin root, similarly to Quantum Vis:
http://acronyms.thef... as you please)

:cheers:

can you explain the origin of this?

--------------------------------------------------

I'd prefer something without "cool" in it :cheers:, that was just a random word i chose for a description :confused1:

--------------------------------------------------

How about MicroVista or RescueLite?


Interesting, imho the best suggestion so far :cheers:

I'll give it 24 hours for more suggestions, then ill upload my newly named app.

Thanks!

Sometimes you give meaning to a name

Based of
Divert - to turn from one course or use to another
This is the way youre using youre project. Using the Original Vista in conjunction with youre tool to divert it into a usable Gui.

I've settled for MicroVista, but micro abbreviated like µTorrent, µVista.

This may change in the future, but ill update the code and upload it shortly, sorry for the slight delay!

Be aware that Vista is a registered trademark owned by Microsoft and you never know whether some of the MS guys may awake with a "bad attitude" one day or another:
http://www.microsoft...ndowsvista.mspx

There has been a really "nasty" case in Germany, about the name of a Linux Distro, Mobilix:
http://tuxmobil.org/...ix_asterix.html

that was (absurdely in my opinion) ruled against the good Linux guys.....

hmm, interesting point again, but then, how is it possible that the VistaPE "crew" "get away with it"?

It means that till now the MS guys of the Legal Department have been either good or, more probable :confused1:, lazy.

Or maybe none of their "Internet Investigators" found VistaPE yet :cheers:, they are not known to be particularly fast or cunning:
http://www.boot-land...?showtopic=2960

or maybe the ones that are charged with Copyright issues are faster than those busy with Trademark issues. :cheers:

:cheers:

However, if they found "offending" a couple of lousy scans of a stupid manual :cheers::
http://rampancy.net/...al_trade_secret
http://kotaku.com/ga...nual-296213.php

God only knows what can happen if you use one of the names that they "subtracted" from the dictionary.

Yep and also be careful to whom you say the words experience, explaination, expression, expert or
Linux pc! :confused1:
Still wondering, how 8 years ago, so many people did get away with using 2000 in the head of their correspondence! :cheers:

That's an easy one, the Internet Investigator :confused1: was in his/her sabbatical in 2000. :cheers:

Hmm, I really like NanoVis, (wish you'd replied a day earlier!)

I am tempted to change it to that, but i'll leave it to the readers. Ive added a poll to this topic, please vote your favourite!

NanoVis sounds good.

The other option almost sounds like something you'd get from a torrent site.. :confused1:

I would write it as nanoVIS. :confused1:

Vis in Latin can be, beside "you want" also:
http://www.nd.edu/~archives/latin.htm

vis acc. vim , abl. vi; plur. vires -ium, f. [force, power, strength; might, influence]; in sing. also [violence]; [a large number, quantity; the force, nature, meaning of a thing]; plur., milit., [troops, forces].


I really like the idea of a "small force", :cheers:, small but capable of rescueing a system.
