Of course, it's open source project.

We know, Bash is a powerful tool in the Linux world. It is perfect to
perform some special tasks. 

But, Linux is used by very few user. Windows users can't enjoy the
convenience of Bash and some powerful Linux command tools.

So, I tried integrating some Bash glued tools into a Linux LiveCD to 
perform special task, with total size about 33M.

But, using it also need some Linux skills and it isn't so convenient as
Windows user use windows native programs.

This is a way for making open source and Linux more useful, it is also a
trade-off, and, a question.
