Why not use liveusb?

Asked by probono

Why did you start a new project from scratch on 2008-09-09 instead of contributing to the existing liveusb tool which has been around since 2008-05-21?

I asked the question, previously. Here is the answer I got.

(02:39:22 PM) hggdh: <gQuigs> QUESTION: difference between usb-creator and liveusb (https://launchpad.net/liveusb)?
(02:39:23 PM) evand: yes! thanks
(02:40:20 PM) evand: liveusb is another project that does roughly the same thing, but after looking over the code they had, I found it would be quicker to develop from scratch given some of the design goals than modify that project to suit our needs
(02:40:39 PM) evand: hopefully we can collaborate in the future and perhaps merge the two
(02:41:08 PM) evand: Fedora also has a tool that does a similar thing
(02:41:42 PM) evand: But it was written in PyQt, and we explicitly wanted this to be frontend neutral (though first in GTK)
(02:41:56 PM) evand: There will eventually be KDE and Windows frontends
