I am full of praise for Amistart, and it's author Darius Brewka. It does not include a terribly good default configuration, but after spending a while to learn the interface, one can become reasonably efficient at adding new entries.
I certainly recommend integrating Amistart - the positive feedback from those using the latest AIAB has been most encouraging. Furthermore, as the 'standard' Amiga interface homogenises, and the various UAE/Workbench distributions gradually share the same software/configuration, new Amiga users should feel tempted to come 'on-board. This can only be a good thing!.
