    "It's not pretty, but it works great!"

    August 13, 2013  |   By Abro86

    Pros

    -Very fast write times
    -Quick links to several Linux distributions, boot rescue cds, and antivirus kits
    -Allows add/removal of all .iso utilities & OS.
    -Fairly easy and intuitive to use. Everything is pretty straightforward

    Cons

    -It's not the prettiest looking utility.
    -I've used a similar application that had more features. But that's not a deal breaker.

    Summary

    I used a little known application called Xboot that also creates a multiboot usb stick. I liked it, and it had lots of features, including Qemu built in to boot .iso files. But ultimately Xboot never really got updated, at least it wasn't updated and was still in a beta stage for over a year. As such it was sometimes buggy, and sometimes failed to write the .iso to the USB. And it was really slow.

    So I recently heard about Yumi and decided to give it a shot. It's definitely no frills, but it's fast, it works excellently, and it allows you to edit and delete any .iso files you put on it. I found it to be an excellent little application. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a multiboot utility.

    I haven't tried to use it with a CD/DVD, and it doesn't look like it supports discs anyway. But I have Imgburn for that duty anyway so I was looking for a USB utility specifically.
