Pros: lightweight bootable CD with some useful tools for HDD maintenance, etc.
Cons: GUI still not too perfect, but for system tools it's ok, 'cause we just need it works fine in doing it's job.
Other Thoughts: If you can't use it please don't rate it, live CD means you have to set up your bios to boot up from Optical Drive (CD/DVD). Don't forget that dude.
