Enterprise Developing is Rolling...

I am happy to announce that, after a long interim, development on Enterprise is going full speed ahead. Hopefully, there won't be any more long delays in development. I know that this is a much-needed program, due to many bug reports detailing the flaws with Mac Linux USB Loader's current firmware solution, and so hopefully it should be in a somewhat beta-testable state soon.

What's currently working is the initial menu and the kernel boot options configuration panel (from where, you'll be able to add options like nomodeset and acpi=off to the kernel boot procedure).

What still needs to be done is processing Enterprise's configuration file - currently it checks for the existence of such a file, but doesn't read its content - it could contain song lyrics for all it mattered - and passing everything to GRUB, which will load Linux from the supplied ISO file like at present.

Screenshots will be coming soon, but will take some setup to capture, as Enterprise runs before any operating system, and thus any potential for screen capturing.
