    I, just like many others, find the overwhelming no. of usb loaders quite daunting and frustrating. They all have such cool features, but you can't have all in one. USB LoaderGX with it's beautiful GUI and settings, coverflow's awesomeness, Configurable loader's costomization. Why doesn't everyone just get together and make one massively awesome loader?

    This is like asking Microsoft and Apple to work together or even getting Nintendo and Sony to work together again.

    It simply will not happen as people want things different ways. To each their own. Plus, competition drive ingenuity.

    GX just needs truly 3d covers, implement a more Coverflow like flow and store settings/images on FAT32 partition. Then it'd be perfect.

    so yeah...

    I agree 100%, plus I like having a variety of choices.

    USB Loader GX is my solid loader with tons of features, and I'm glad to report that rev475 is fantastic. I was still using rev409 because newer versions took a long time to boot up, but 475 boots even faster and works great.

    Titlemenu is easily the most fun loader to play around with. Here's a fun party game to play with Titlemenu: Have a lot of games on your drive, and zoom way out until you can't see what the covers are. Then aim at the cluster, and whatever game you choose, you and your friends have to play. Darn, Anubis II again!

    Coverfloader, although not working for me at the moment, combines the beauty of the coverflow, with a great list of features/settings.

    WiiFlow looks, and performs amazingly. If I wanted impress somebody with a usb loader, I would use WiiFlow. The aesthetics alone make this loader a joy to use.

    Then there are many more loaders, with some focusing on functionality over aesthetics, which is good to round everything out.

    It's not easy to find because there isn't a thread dedicated to the release
