Together EasyBCD and TweakVI allow users to completely setup and customize their Vista setups, from the bootmenu to the startup screen to the shutdown window: Complete Control! If you haven’t had the chance to experience either, now is the time! Here’s what they do:
Totalidea Software’s TweakVI
TweakVI was designed for easy tweaking an optimizing a Windows Vista based computer. TweakVI is the first software ever designed to both tweak and optimize Windows Vista! Tweak hundreds of hidden features of Windows Vista, optimize your machine and customize it to your needs – The best tweaking software ever!
NeoSmart Technologies’ EasyBCD
EasyBCD is NeoSmart Technologies’ multiple award-winning answer to tweaking the new Windows Vista bootloader. With EasyBCD, almost anything is possible. Setting up and configuring Windows boot entries is simple, and there is no easier way to quickly boot right into Linux, Mac OS X, or BSD straight from the Windows Vista bootloader – on the fly, no expert knowledge needed!
Integrated binaries will be made available soon. Developers from both teams are enthusiastically pursuing the integration of EasyBCD and TweakVI, and the finished result is almost ready!
Q: What do you get when the two best pieces of free software merge?
A: A really good deal & Christmas come early!
I think this is a very good dea, business-wise.
Let’s be honest here.
EasyBCD has conquered the “Geek Market,” but its advanced features probably don’t attract much traffic from the “Computer Enthusiast” group – those that want to tweak their PC, but don’t really know how.
TweakVI, on the other hand, has that market covered. Totally. But at the same time, it doesn’t appeal too much to the hard-core hacker, something that EasyBCD seems to have an exclusive stronghold over.
This is a good chance for both products to get more exposure in both markets. However, whereas it’s possible for the average computer enthusiast to “get into” the advanced features of multi-booting and advanced set ups, the ratio of “hackers” picking up TweakVI is going to be lower.
But still, excellent news! Carry on with the awesome work you two!
Carry on the awesome work, CG!
