    Boot repair: when will it be in the Ubuntu Software Center?

    Hey everyone,

    I was wondering when, or if the Boot Repair tool will ever be, avaible directly from the Ubuntu Software Center? I know we can use the excelent tool by downloading it from the web, or running the Ubuntu Secure remix disk. However, wouldn't having the Boot-repair avaible for easy download from there be better?

    Thanks alot,
    Daniel

    It all depends on whether or not the developer has submitted an application for inclusion in the software centre. Then the code has to be checked to see if it can do something nasty to the OS. And that takes time.

    And when you think about it Boot Repair and OS-Remover are powerful tools that are useful when there is a serious issue but not necessarily the sort of tools to mess around with when there is no need.

    And what if you cannot boot into Ubuntu to run Boot Repair. Perhaps it is better to have them as a downloadable ISO image to be run from a live session.

    Regards.
