In my last attempt to throw out Windows and install a Linux I came across

(https://fedorahosted.org/liveusb-creator). This tool was really cool and
made things easier :)

As I&#8217;m a C# developer a have begun to make such tool for Haiku but
only simplifying this How To

It&#8217;s made in Visual Studio 2008 C#,  SharpZLi. The GUI is much
inspired by the &#8220;Fedore LiveUSB Creator&#8221;.It&#8217;s possible
to browse for a zip and after that it&#8217;s automatically flash the USB
you have selected. The program can also list the files from predefined
server/servers and download that image, unzip and then flash the USB
(right now the Flash part is separated from the app).

With C# it will require the .NET Framework... it's a bit overkill IMHO.
What's wrong about C and C++? Almost the whole Haiku is written in C++...
I wrote C++ Windows apps for ages, I can help you with that.
