    Only distributed as a CD-ROM, which wastes plastic. Yes I know I can make a bootable USB/PXE from an ISO. Log file doesnt write to USB. Who has a floppy drive anymore? Finishes with full screen advertising for Blancco. Many unanswered questions in bugs/forums. No support for newer hardware No longer maintained. No longer in the spirit of open source, killed off for Blancco's commercial interests.
