Victor & kof94,

Will this project ever be open source? It is an excellent tool. But it is very outdated.

At minimum a new release with newest memtest version 2 or later,
the newer seagate, wd & ibm diags,
and many other programs
warrant a new ver.

Please consider this.

I'm not sure but for the project to be considered Open Source all the included programs may have to also be Open Source. Many of the HDD Diags and other tools are not Open Source and some of the other included programs are shareware and trialware so that may not work.

The project these forums refer to is "Ultimate Boot CD." It is confusing why anyone would think to request every project included be open source.

A new release is planned, Victor just lacks time. And there are lots of tutorials and how-tos that let you know how to update / customize the UBCD by yourself if you can't wait...
