Boost :

To be perfectly honest I haven't really looked for anything else and unless
people can come up with a reason for not using WIX it is likely the one I
will use. Why? Mainly for 2 reasons:

1. This is the one I am most familiar with (ie been reading about it for a
long time)
2. I have been meaning for a long time to actually try using WIX. I guess
this is my chance =p.

Now does this mean it is the right tool to use for Boost? Hell no!!! But as
I said unless there are good reasons for not using it I will probably just
stick with this one.

Although if other people have already started something else I am happy to
contribute =p.
