@JudyGarland: thanks for the additional detail. As usual, billon sorted it out.

@webfork: I copy and paste from 'basic (system) requirements' section:
Windows Vista/7/8/10 or WINE to create the USB (Win 98/XP/2K WILL NOT Work!)
I'm able to 'run' it under XP though, but I have no idea if it actually 'works', either partially or totally.
Devs say it doesn't.

@JudyGarland: Have you tested on WinXP?  I ask because sometimes we list "system requirements / runs on" rather than "supported".  For example, a lot of tools here on the site were built before it came out, but we'll list Win10 if it's functional in testing.

@webfork - Windows XP is not supported.

By the same author(s), YUMI has the additional advantage of enabling multiple 'Live' distros to coexist on a portable USB drive: http://www.pendrivelinux.com/yumi-multiboot-usb-creator/

Have a look at the license agreement page, which is displayed when the tool is run.

Josh: can't find license / source info on the site.

Just an FYI,

UUi is actually Open Source. Just thought you might want to change that in the listing.
