there are so many possibilities, and opinions on a good one so I hope that while the software can be closed the method for creating a plugin is open and simplified for those not able to script but want to donate, like myself.
I have several commercial/non-commercial apps I use on my ubcds and can donate if I am able to write plugins for it. I think thou the worse part of ubcd is the definitions and choice of linux (again I use choice), the definition is awesome but the more people develop and help others... well this could be the best thing to come to ubcd.
I tend to go a little nuts on my cds, bloated them to around 400/700mb. But I wanna have everything on that one little cd/dvd (mini).
The ones I think definitely should be added as plugins:
R.I.P. Recovery is possible (With X enviroment)
System Rescue CD
I'd like to see:
D.S.L. damn small linux
Dell utilities cd, and/or other SMALL system recovery disks such as hp, asus or other.
I don't use these systems, I have a mac, but think it's a good idea for recovery.
I also maybe the only one who uses my ubcd cd for an "all purpose, multi-distro cd". What I normally add is msdos 6.22, windows 95-98se disks, acronis true image / disk director (commercial), geexbox, MenuetOS, DexOS and Kolibri. For linux, last time, I added astrumi/dsl/rip and geexbox. I've tried a minimal bsd live cd like "frenzy" but it has never worked for me. Think also we should work with, or use a simple/upgradeable linux distribution for ubcd. Either using the package system (simple one like deb, rpm, pacman, etc.) or something like dsl or slax that uses it's own additions in a directory on cd. Why an os? well, downloading files to turn into disks, flexability, os-replacement if needed, and all important looking stuff up and that's why I want firefox/irc or messenger installed
P.s. While I have not attempted a beta customized v5, I am likely to expand my cd to include xmbc i nstead of geexbox, http://xbmc.org/
, I will post my success and steps if it works
